Pumpkin Spiced Hummus

The first time Joe took a bit of hummus, he proudly exclaimed, “I love this humpus!”

Yes, humpus.

We laughed so hard that the name stuck. So if you come over and I put out a tray of veggies and humpus, please make sure to refer to it accordingly.

For October entertaining, I love to put a pumpkin spin on anything I can. This pumpkin spiced hummus humpus has a hint of pumpkin pie spice and a tiny tingle of spicy cayenne (of course you can up the spicy factor if you like).

It takes only a few minutes to whip up and tastes great with veggies or crackers.

How do you like your humpus?
