  1. Hello! It looks delicious! Did you use roasted red peppers packed in water or in oil? All the recipes I find have them packed in water, but that doesn’t exist where I live (only in oil).

    1. You can use the peppers in oil if you’d like. Gently rinse the oil off and pat dry. If you’d like, you can also use the red pepper oil in place of the olive oil.

      Alternatively, you can also make your own roasted red peppers. Cut a pepper in half and remove stem and seeds. Place skin side up on a cookie sheet and brush the skin with olive oil. Roast in a 425 degree oven for about 15 minutes (more or less depending in pepper size). Skin should be blistering and even a little burnt. Place in a bowl and cover tightly with plastic wrap to cool. Once peppers are cool to the touch peel off the skin and use as needed!

  2. I read this recipe this morning and had everything to make it. I had been looking for a good homemade recipe and this one is it! I cannot believe how delicious this is. I had two jalapeños in the fridge so I roasted them as well and threw them in. The only changes I made were a bit more salt and only used 1/4 tsp. Of crushed red pepper and it was perfect for my taste. SkinnyMs, I am so glad I found you!

    1. Hi Jeanette,

      I’m so glad you loved the Roasted Red Pepper Hummus (it’s one of my favorites, too)! I loved that you added two roasted jalapenos. Yum!
