Hummus Recipe : Easy and Delicious

Being in Kuwait for several years, it was pretty easy to develope the taste for good Arabic/Middle eastern food. And what is better than Hummus.
Of course we all have our variations and I have mine as well. The ingredient which really adds the kick in my hummus is green chillies. :)
Here is my very simple recipe.
Dump the following in a food processor and blend till smooth.
2 cans of garbanzo beans (drained and washed)
2 tablespoons Tahini (sesame paste available at mediterranean stores)
2 thai green chillies ( add more or less upon your spice level)
2-3 table spoons lemon juice
4-5 cloves of garlic (Again more or less depending on your taste)
2-3 heaped tablespoons of yogurt (to make it richer you can add sour cream instead)
salt to taste

Blend the above ingredients till smooth and then add in 2-3 tbsp olive oil to make the mixture smooth.
Serve garnished with drizzle of olive oil, tomatoes, olives and enjoy with pita or chips.

This looks delicious. I will definitely be trying it soon. This years I'm growing my own Thai chiles and I usually have the rest of the ingredients on hand.

I often put hummus in half a pita bread and top it with chopped tomatoes, chunks of avocado, and some salsa. It's really a delicious mix.

That sounds delicious. I usually have hummus as a dip, in a falafel sandwidth or with chicken tandoori. It goes well with the spicy chicken.
