I have seen so many flavored hummus containers in the supermarket lately. You can find spicy red pepper hummus, garlic flavored hummus, lemon flavored hummus, or olive infused hummus. But it is easy to make your own flavored hummus at home. One that particularily appealed to me was a recipe using orange marmalade. Using this as a starting point, I can see substituting red pepper jelly or other interesting flavors.
I used whole wheat pita bread that I roasted in the oven with a little olive oil and sea salt. This made a very satisfying appetizer.

Place ingredients in food process and process until pureed. Cover and refrigerate for several hours to allow flavors to blend. Bring to room temperature before serving.
