There are many variations on traditional hummus, and this is one of my favorites. I thought it would be too spicy with all that red pepper, but it really isn't. Hummus is always good with veggies, but I like it best with homemade pita chips. It makes a great, healthy lunch and keeps well in the refrigerator for several days. I like to drizzle it with some additional olive oil just before serving.
