33 Easy & Unexpected Hummus Recipes (That Go Beyond Just Dip)

If there were a yearbook superlative for “most versatile food,” chickpeas would garner the nomination, hands down. The beige beans are the most widely consumed legume in the world. We consider them a staple for their high protein content, soft, nutty flavor and ability to upgrade every chip and carrot stick in our favorite form of all: hummus.

But did you know you can also make tacos with the creamy spread? Or use it on chicken skewers? And who better to lead the charge than Sabra, our grocery-store go-to. Here, 30+ easy and unexpected hummus recipes (that go way beyond just dip).

Psst, don't be afraid to swap ingredients for what's available to you right now. Experimenting is half the fun.
