Easy Classic Hummus Recipe

Yes I finally made hummus, all by myself! I’m feeling accomplished. :) I love hummus, but usually buy it at a local company here in Portland. I wanted to make it myself for snacks and whenever I am craving it. Yay! I love the simple and healthy ingredients that go into this hummus. Also, if you haven't already checked my previous post, Butternut Squash Fries , you should, those fries are great with this hummus.
