Virginia Peanut Butter Hummus


Hummus is a classic middle-eastern dip/spread that's made with sesame seed butter.  


Now, here in Virginia the peanut capital of the world, we're more likely to have a jar (or 2) of peanut butter in the kitchen than sesame seed butter.  We do so love our peanut butter!


Sesame seed butter and peanut butter are just about the same when it comes to taste, texture and color so why not put our peanut butter to work in this ab/fab dip/spread recipe????  


No one will ever know the difference and you're helping our local economy - plus you don't have to figure out what to do with that left over jar of sesame seed butter.


This is a super snack for the Super Bowl..... or any time!!
