Easy Peasy Super Bowl Appetizers


Super bowl can be a scary, stressful event.  If the need for constant flow of food wasn’t stressful enough, I hate the way I feel after eating bowls of chips, cheese balls….. and other random processed food.

Fear not, I have a solution…. hummus!  You can make this a few days ahead and it’s super healthy.

Ingredient Side

Ingredient 1

I treat hummus like a blank canvas.  Although it’s great in it’s original form, you can add any flavor you crave/favor and make it your own.  You can pretty much make hundreds of different versions of hummus.  I always like to keep the original version of hummus when entertaining a group of people, as you can’t be sure about everyone’s palate.  For super bowl, I decided to make some jalapeño hummus along the original hummus.

Another great thing about hummus, you can serve it with a great array of things… chips, pita, carrots, celery, etc.  So go on, give it a whirl!



Original Hummus:


  • 1 can garbanzo beans (chickpeas), strained and rinsed
  • 2 cloves of garlic (peeled)
  • 2 tbsp sesame tahini
  • 4 tbsp lemon juice (about 1/2 lemon)
  • 2 tbsp greek yogurt
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • A pinch of cumin (optional)
  • 1/4 cup of olive oil (mild flavor)


  • Put all the ingredients up to the olive oil in a food processor and pulse until everything is incorporated.
  • Stream in olive oil, while the food processor is running, for about 30 seconds.
  • Serve with whatever and enjoy!
