Smoky Roasted Garlic Hummus
 
Hummus is an all-around good dip, pairing well with veggies or pita wedges, and it works great as a sandwich spread too! I like my hummus extra-smoky, so will often add chipotle (watch out for the heat!) or smoked paprika. A good olive oil is important in this recipe, or try an infused one to give your hummus a bit of a twist.
