Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

 One of my favorite recipes to prepare is homemade hummus.  Its not only easy but it also makes an exactly dip for chips, vegetables and spreads for sandwiches. I love making a tomato, spinach and red onion sandwich with a healthy dose of hummus spread all over my bread.  I know a lot of friends and family were asking for the recipe and here it is.  Have fun making it, the best thing about hummus is you can add all types of spices and veggies to make it your own.
