WHOA!!  Do you know what today is?  It’s National Hummus Day !!  That’s right.  A day dedicated to the marriage of Mr Tahini and Miss Cici Bean.  And such a delicious marriage it is.  I’ve teamed up with Sabra Dipping Co to bring you this cheesy, bacony, and garlicy hummusy deliciousness.  I mean, this sammie was: off. the. hook.

I have been a Sabra Tastemaker for the past two years and one of the questions I get all of the time is: what else can you do with hummus besides using it as a dip?  Hummus is incredibly versatile and makes for a great “binder” when added to ground meat or even swirled into sauces.  You don’t even need to get fancy pants with it and can toss hot pasta in it.  

A few of my favorite recipes using hummus:

See what I mean?  So easy to use in tons of ways other than just for dipping.  Which, don’t get me wrong, is amazing as well.  We use hummus in our house for dipping veggies and in place of mayo almost daily.  So why not spread it on a panini, right?  Are you picking up what I’m putting down?  I used the Roasted Garlic Hummus for this recipe, but pretty much any of the flavors will work great.
