Don't buy hummus!

Now before you start accusing me of hummus-hating listen up! Don't buy hummus. It's too easy to make yourself and the home made version tastes much better than any store bought hummus--even fancy speciality store hummus.

Dead Simple Hummus Recipe
1-22oz can     Garbonzo Beans (aka Chick peas, aka Ceci beans)
1 tbsp         Tahini - not "raw"
2 tbsp         Olive oil
1 tbsp         Crushed garlic
1/2 tsp        Salt - some people like more. Depends on the beans used too.
1/2 tsp        Cayenne pepper

Partially open the can of beans with a can opener and tip over in sink to let
them drain for 5-10 minutes. Put all of the other ingredients into food processor
and spin for a minute or longer until everything is well mixed and smooth. 
Add the beans and spin again until everything is smooth. Enjoy!

There are hundreds and hundreds of variations on this basic recipe you can make. I now make hummus about once a week and eat it for lunch with unsalted pita chips (generally home made from leftover pitas). I can no longer imagine myself ever buying someone else's hummus again.
