Spicy Black Eyed Pea Hummus Recipe


I love hummus and pita chips as a healthy snack. I got the inspiration to make my own blackeyed pea hummus today and it turned out great! Definitely something that fits right in to the Project 10 Challenge and keeps me headed toward my goal.

This recipe is a lighter version of typical hummus recipes and I love the flavor blackeyed peas impart versus the more traditional chick peas.
