Homemade Spicy Tomato Basil Hummus

Serves 4 to 6


  • 1 cup Organico Bello Spicy Marinara pasta sauce
  • 1 (19 oz.) can garbanzo beans
  • 2 tbsp. tahini
  • Juice of 2 lemons
  • 4 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tsp. salt + more to taste
  • Black pepper
  • Red pepper flakes
  • Chips, bread, and fresh veggies for dipping


Drain about half of the liquid from the garbanzo beans, then pour the beans into a blender or food processor. Add tahini, olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, salt, and pepper and pulse several times until all of the beans are creamed and the ingredients are well-blended. Pour into a large serving bowl. Stir in Organico Bello Spicy Marinara pasta sauce, ½ cup at a time. Sprinkle with red pepper flakes. Serve with chips, bread, and fresh veggies and adjust seasoning as desired.

NOTE: You can substitute homemade hummus for your favorite, plain store-bought brand, then stir in Organico Bello pasta sauce.
