This clean eating taco hummus is great with clean corn chips or as a condiment on tacos!
As many of you know, I simply love Mexican food. It’s incredible stuff. I could eat it seven days a week and never get tired of it. So I tend to do a lot with those types of flavors whenever I can, even if the dish is not technically Mexican food.
I’m not sure why I never put this combination together before. It’s really quite tasty and goes incredibly well with some homemade corn chips. And it’s just so easy to dump all those easy-to-find ingredients into your blender! You’ll have an amazing dish of hummus ready in second and enjoy lots of good-for-you fiber to boot! It’s simply delicious and tastes even better the next day!
WHAT IS HUMMUS MADE OF?
Hummus is typically made with chickpeas (garbanzo beans), tahini (sesame paste) and other additions such as garlic or lemon. You can season hummus any way you choose.

WHAT DOES HUMMUS TASTE LIKE?
It can be a tough flavor to describe, but if you have had chickpeas before, it’s that flavor plus a light touch of sesame. It’s savory and great with many dishes or snacks. The flavor can be altered based on what you add to it.
