Pro tip:

  • You could even use this hummus as the "glue" in a cold wrap using our favorite La Tortilla Factory® low-carb, high-fiber whole-wheat tortilla. Spread the hummus and fill the tortilla with fresh peppers, grilled chicken and shredded lettuce. You'll have an instant fajita to go without the mess!
