This recipe puts a little twist on traditional hummus by adding spinach and artichoke. I love the green color and the blend of flavors it adds! Hummus can be expensive when bought at the store, and you can easily make it at home with many ingredients you already have on hand.
With just one can of chickpeas (also known as garbanzo beans) you can make a TON on yummy hummus.
