Disclosure: As co-owner of The Recipe ReDux I was paid to manage this recipe contest. 

 

Remember this awesome lasagna I posted over the weekend? You know the one — where I sub in hummus for cream-of-whatever soup in what has to be one of my most genius moments ever?

Wait, what? You missed it? Please go back. I promise you’ll be happy you did. 

(Waiting patiently.) 

Was I right or what? Hummus — good. Lasagna — good. Hummus IN Lasagna. GREAT! 

Lemme tell you what hummus is also good in, or rather on… a Mexican pizza. Like this:

I REALLY wanted to call this Mexican Hummus Pizza, but I just couldn’t get up the courage. Sure, it would be a good name for a fusion recipe contest, but honestly when you eat these you never think “fusion food.” Hummus has a reputation for being a Mediterranean diet” appetizer ('cause it is). But c’mon. If you can make a lasagna filling out of hummus why can’t you make a pizza topping from it? 

You can. And I did. 

All this week and leading up to National Hummus Day on Saturday, May 13, Sabra Hummus is sponsoring a recipe contest with The Recipe ReDux aimed at showcasing our best appetizer or snack recipes. I’m a personal believer that hummus doesn’t need much more to be a great appetizer than some pita chips, but it never hurts to gild the lily a bit. 

And by gilding of course I mean layering seasoned black beans, whole wheat tortillas, hummus, spicy chipotle pepper, onion and queso.

Enjoy!
