Hummus Review by GodPluce on May 17th, 2012:

I made it with a pinch of paprika instead of cayenne pepper (didn't have it). Still came out delicious!

Very nice. Had it with some white rice.

I've been sharing this recipe with friends and family. It's that good, especially if you start with dried chickpeas.
