Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

    Prepare this popular dip up to 1 day ahead of time. Cover and refrigerate until serving.

    Serve this mellow dip like they do in Turkey. Make a depression in the middle of the bowl of hummus, and spoon in 1 to 2 tablespoons olive oil.
  • tip 3
    Roast an extra bulb of garlic to serve with the hummus.
