Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

I love hummus! It is very rare that I leave the grocery store without some roasted garlic hummus and lightly salted pita chips. I go to town with those two. I had never even thought about making my own until I was browsing online for ways to use these extra peppers I had and found this roasted red bell pepper hummus. I thought it was delicious. I had some other extra veggies too and bought some whole grain pita pockets and stuffed them with this spicy hummus, tomatoes, bell peppers and cucumbers. It not only tasted great but felt great in that its virtually guilt-free. The only thing I should warn people about with this hummus is not to plan on smooching anytime after eating it :)
