hummus, i got the hummus ...

Ross: (After Joey gets humus on Phoebe's dress) Don't rub it! (clapping) What gets out hummus?! What gets out humus?!
Phoebe: Monica, Monica! You know, what gets out hummus?
Monica: If it is a new message, what is he calling to say?
Phoebe: Okay, thanks. Yeah, I'll try that.

I always think of my favorite Friends episode, (the one where no one's ready) when I hear the word hummus.  If you haven't watched this episode, it is a must see!  Anywho, besides being part of a hilarious Friends episode hummus is also a delicious and healthy snack!  Not to mention, quite easy to make - here is a recipe from food & wine:
1 cup cooked chickpeas, drained 
2 large garlic cloves, chopped
 2 tablespoons tahini 
Juice of 1 lemon 
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil 
Salt and freshly ground pepper 

In a food processor, puree the chickpeas, garlic, tahini and lemon juice. Gradually add the olive oil until incorporated. Season the hummus with salt and pepper and scrape it into a bowl. Refrigerate until ready to serve or use.

sprinkle some red pepper on top to serve...

Pita chips and hummus are an excellent pair!  I cut up some pita bread, brushed the wedges with extra virgin olive oil, sprinkled on some sea salt, and popped them in the oven until crispy!

Take this snack to a Memorial Day party this weekend!
(...and try not to spill any on your friends)
