Butternut Squash & Cilantro Hummus | Britt's BlurbsOkay who else is with me on this one.. give me chips n’ dip and I’m a happy girl. Seriously, that crunch factor is killer mixed with a savory dip.

Pita chips can be my weakness so I justify that with healthy dip. All in balance right?! …right…

 

The thing I probably love most about hummus is that you can make it a million different ways, with a million different flavors.

Okay maybe not a million. But a lot. A lot of yummy and nutritious ways.

That picture reminds me of something straight out of Italy.. please take me back?!

The health benefits of all of the ingredients are pretty appealing as well. It’s not all about the looks people, it’s what’s on the inside of the hummus that really matters.
