Cilantro Hummus

Cilantro Hummus // shutterbean

As a food blogger, I try really hard to balance what I eat. Some days are better than others. Sometimes my temptations get a hold of me and I fall prey to a big old fashioned doughnut. It’s totally normal; it’s what I refer to as LIVING!  What I’ve learned about health and balancing my diet is that one must arm oneself with good choices or else you’ll be more likely to grab a bag of pretzels over vegetables & fruit. All it takes is a little time upfront and you’re on your way.

Well…that and…WILLPOWER.

Cilantro Hummus // shutterbean

If you’ve followed my meal prep post or you’ve seen some of my weekly meal prep posts on Instagram, you’ll know that I almost always have fresh cut vegetables in my fridge. It works out well for us because we have a five year old who loves to eat red peppers (sometimes carrots!) and cucumbers for his “appetizer.”  It also makes it easier for me to make good choices throughout the day.

Cilantro Hummus // shutterbean

But what do you do if you’re sick of eating vegetables plain? MAKE HUMMUS!  I’ve owned a Vitamix for a few years now and it’s become of my most used kitchen appliances (besides our panini press). Cooper has 4-5 smoothies (packed with kale & spinach!) a week and I use it to make a weekly batch of vanilla almond milk or fresh homemade pesto. I’ve added hummus to our weekly rotation because my Vitamix blends it up like a dream! Hummus is fine on its own, but why don’t we take it up a notch and add cilantro oil to the top? You’re probably wondering- Why not mix the cilantro IN with the hummus? Because a certain five-year old that I live with doesn’t like it…. But he WILL eat the hummus without it and that’s good enough for me. More cilantro oil for me!!

And we’re off! We’re gonna make our cilantro oil first. It’s like a liquid-y pesto. It’s a flavor enhancer!

Now we add the cilantro, oil, salt with a small squeeze of lemon into the blender. We’re using grapeseed oil because it doesn’t have a strong taste.Vegetable oil will do as well.

Cilantro Hummus

makes about 3 cups

to make the cilantro oil:

  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1/2 cup grapeseed oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • squeeze of lemon

Place ingredients in a blender and process until smooth.

to make the hummus:

  • 1 (15 oz. can) garbanzo beans, drained & rinsed
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1  1/2 tablespoons tahini
  • 1 clove garlic
  • salt and pepper to taste

Place the garbanzo beans, paprika, cumin, olive oil, lemon juice, tahini and garlic into a blender and process on high until hummus is smooth and creamy. Season with salt & pepper to taste. If hummus is too thick, add about a tablespoon or two of water while processing to thin it out. Serve hummus with cilantro drizzled on top.

  • Tori

    what?! this is awesome! I’ve just started making my own hummus (2 delicious batches) and I’m a little bit in love. BUT with the weather warming up guacamole will probably be taking its place. (I have yet to try your guacamole hummus, but it will happen)

  • Lisa

    My favorite dip is classic spinach and artichoke!

  • Maddie

    Guacamole salsa! Half guac (or sometimes just a mushed up avocado) and half SUPER SPICY salsa verde. It’s like a creamier salsa or a thinner guac. It’s perfect. I also like to mix ghost chile salsa into my hummus. It’s amazing!

    Totally addicted to guacamole – it’s the probably the best ever!

  • Tanya B

    If I am feeling healthy, I would have to say hummus, but if I am feeling indulgent, I have to go with french onion. Of course that has to be accompanied by ruffles potato chips.

  • Jill M

    My favorite dip is a black bean chipotle hummus. So good!

    I’d have to say hummus, which means I need one of these babies to help make that cilantro oil to put on top. Can’t wait to try it!

    does tex-mex queso (with a halved avocado open face down in the bowl so with every dip, you get some avocado with each bite) count?

  • Suzi

    I eat hummus A LOT, but my absolute favorite dip is my aunt’s southwest dip. It involves a brick of cream cheese, a bag of shredded cheddar, and lots of jalapenos. SO GOOD (but definitely not good for daily munching).

    I love guacamole! But I love basil pesto too.

  • Amy

    I like hummus (excited to try your cilantro twist on it), and a white bean dip that I make with garlic, olive oil, sea salt, and fresh rosemary. It’s great on veggies & crostini!

  • diana

    homemade hummus is so much better than store bought! my fav dip has got to be guacamole though – specifically if its from Chipotle 🙂

    Hummus!

  • Lauren

    I love a good hummus, but I have a special place in my heart for a (not so healthy) spinach artichoke dip.

    Guacamole! Thanks for this awesome giveaway!

  • Heather

    Awesome giveaway!! We’ve been trying to eat more fruits and veggies and have been making smoothies almost daily – my 2 year old loves adding the fruits and veggies and watching it mix. Does guacamole count as a dip because homemade guacamole is a favorite in our house.

  • Rachel

    It’s hard to beat really good hummus, but I also love yogurt/veggie/spice dips!

  • Jennifer

    I make Hummus all of the time. I make all different flavors…like roasted red pepper hummus, roasted garlic hummus, sun dried tomato hummus, cilantro jalapeño hummus, and a few others. I love hummus because it is a very versatile dip and came used as an ingredient in some many other dishes.

  • Laura

    White bean dip is my very favorite dip!

  • Marisa

    Oh my gosh it’s a dream come true! I love hummus but I love romesco sauce more (pureed roasted red peppers and almond base). It’s amazing baked onto chicken too!

    A really cold, thick and tangy ranch dip. And I mean you can NEVER go wrong with a cheese dip.

    I LOVE the look of this cilantro hummus. I think adding cilantro makes almost anything better. I’d say my all time favorite dip is babaganoush. I LOVE the olive oil, garlic, lemon, and eggplant flavors. Super excited about this giveaway! I have been lusting after a Vitamix FOREVER!

  • Kate

    My favorite dip is brie cheese baked in a bread bowl!

  • Caitlin

    Guac, all the way!

  • Lisa Tornello

    Hummus!

  • Shealyn Johnson

    My favorite dip would have to be spinach-artichoke dip…and all its cheesy goodness. Plus I can pretend like I’m being healthy since it has veggies :). Definitely enjoy a good hummus and guacamole as well. But you cant go wrong with a good ‘ol dip in some ranch.

  • Lyndsay

    My favorite dip is a cheeseball recipe from our family’s beaten-up, 1980’s Spencer, IA YMCA fundraiser cookbook. The pineapple cheeseball, affectionately just called “THE cheeseball” has been a staple at family holidays for decades now. Healthy? No. Delicious? Yes.

    no dip left behind – whichever dip is in front of me at the time is my favorite!

    I love pretty much all dips, not going to lie. But give me some white bean and basil hummus from TJ’s and I can eat the entire container.

  • Lisa

    I’m a huge fan of french onion dip or spinach dip. So tasty and both are easy to make for a crowd!

  • Elana

    I can’t get over how pretty that hummus swirl is.

    Peanut butter. Peanut butter is my favorite dip because you can easily make it sweet or savory. Bag of chocolate chips? Dip. Mix it up Thai style and you got satay. Dip.

  • Meghan

    At every family get-together, my aunt makes this wonderful spicy crab dip – crab, cream cheese, mayo, hot sauce, etc – entirely unhealthy, but oh so indulgent! I could eat that with a baguette any day of the week!

    Hummus is a good dip, but baba ganoush is my fav! I love roasted eggplant, it really makes my day better 🙂

  • Janelle Andrea

    Favorite dip? I’d have to say spinach artichoke. I can’t resist it!

  • Laura

    It’s a tie between guacamole & spinach artichoke dip (heavy on the artichokes)!

  • Kate

    Buffalo Chicken Dip or Queso! Not exactly healthy, but it’s about BALANCE, right?

    Without a doubt, the Tomatillo Avocado Dip from whatsgabycooking.com — I dream about it. Gimme a sweet potato, tortilla chips, veggies, or (more than likely) just a spoon.

    Lemon Guacamole….yum yum yum. My mom had a vitamix growing up and got so spoiled with a machine that can really do anything.

  • Kelly

    Can’t get enough of my sister’s Buffalo Chicken dip made with Greek yogurt!

  • Joanna

    Green goddess or a homemade caramelized onion dip. Something about the herby, garlicky taste of green goddess makes my taste buds dance and what’s not to love about caramelized onions?

  • Nia

    I recently had romesco sauce at a restaurant to dip shrimp into and it was divine! I would love to make it at home.

  • Kristen

    It’s a toss up between guac and hummus! Maybe a three way tie with French Onion Dip too!

  • Marla Solano

    Spinach Dip!!! yay!

  • Angela

    Homemade guacamole. Has to be homemade.

  • Missy

    You know that horribly delicious dip that everyone makes by mixing sour cream with dried onion soup mix? Well, my mom doesn’t like sour cream (neither do I!) so she would blend low fat cottage cheese in the blender while adding the onion soup mix. To this day, it’s one of my favorite dips for veggies and chips. I will sometimes even eat the entire container (and bonus: feel much less guilt than I would if I ate an entire container of sour cream!).

  • Traci

    Salsa is my favorite but I am acquiring a taste for hummus.

  • Laura F.

    Red pepper hummus with pretzel thins…yummmm…great, now I am hungry…I am going to go get some right now!

  • katie

    I like to make a sort of 5-alarm hummus that is too spicy for all the wimps in my life (more for me!) – typical hummus base blended with 4 or 5 chipotles in adobo sauce, several liberal shakes of Tabasco, red pepper flakes, cayenne…clear sinuses for days!

  • Camille

    I’ve loved guacamole ever since I tried it on my honeymoon in Costa Rica six years ago! Thanks for the chance to win the blender.

  • Andrea

    Hummus and guac

  • Emily

    I am totally on the guacamole bandwagon! I like it with roasted jalapeños and garlic.

  • Isra

    Guacamole

  • jacquie

    artichoke and spinach dip

  • Bridget

    I love good guacamole!

  • Dottie

    Oh wow! I’ve been wanting a Vitamix for years.

    I think my favorite dip is a feta dip–like the one Bon Apetite just featured last month. SO GOOD!

    http://www.bonappetit.com/recipe/herbed-feta-dip

    Yay!

  • Angela

    You don’t need a blender for it (but I’ve been lusting after a Vitamix forever!), but I just whipped up a faux tzatziki to go on my spicy shrimp cakes with cucumbers, dill, parsley, greek yogurt, and a squeeze of lime juice. It was perfect with the super spicy shrimp!

  • Christine

    Is guacamole a dip? If not, hummus for sure! Mmm. I’m hungry now.

  • Erin

    My favorite dip is salsa con queso. That is like my kryptonite and if it’s in front of me, I will eat the whole bowl.

  • Margaret

    Probably Ranch dressing. Its not the healthiest, but favorites rarely are the most nutritious choice.

  • MeLisa

    My favorite dip is probably roasted red pepper mixed with ricotta

  • Becky R.

    I love those ranch-y dips that are probably bad for you, but SO good with chips. They show up so often at parties!

  • Brittany

    Guacamole all the way. Yum!

  • Elly

    Oooh, what a tough question. I’ll have to say tzatziki is my favorite, with guacamole and red salsas vying for second place. I like the idea of cilantro oil – will have to try it with my hummus someday.

  • ila

    gotta love some crab gratin! But for healthy with veggies: tzatziki

  • Sabrina Modelle

    I love to dip stuff in vinaigrettes, which I know is a tad strange. But then, I’m a tad strange. Also love anything made with creme fraiche.

  • Sarah

    Red pepper hummus…nom nom nom! 🙂

  • ChristineFD

    Tapenade!!

  • Valerie

    Hummus with garlic and roasted tomato.

  • SherryC

    Anything and I mean anything with avocado. Love it!)

    Roasted red pepper hummus from publix (or homemade) is my favorite!

  • Meagan

    Being from Texas, guacamole is my #1 fave. But I also adore hummus and spinach/artichoke dip!

    I could never decide between guacamole, feta dip, and hummus. They’re all favorites!

    Pico de gallo! Not technically a dip but delicious nonetheless

  • meaghan

    Guacamole! Thanks for the giveaway!

  • Kristen

    I love a really bright, fresh, spicy salsa! Straight from the garden, if possible.

  • Laura

    Guacamole, for ever and for always.

  • Angela Y

    I like hummus with a lot of garlic, or spinach and artichoke dip!

  • Mardi

    I like all the dips. BUT – salsa is probably my favorite, not from a jar, from a Mexican restaurant.

  • Theresa

    Guacamole. x1000. A friend taught me to add in a tiny dash of soy sauce to help bring out the flavors. Genius move!

  • Hillary

    White bean dip with chili flakes – so good!

  • Charity

    hummus with roasted red peppers all up in it. that’s my fave!

  • alicia

    any dip! – but i tend to gravitate toward white bean hummus OR guacamole (both homemade) more so than any other 🙂

  • Amberlee

    Salsa for breakfast, lunch, and dinner! A close runner up is hummus though; I’ll have to make your cilantro oil variation soon. 🙂

  • Kelly G.

    I love pesto! I spread it on everything, and will dip anything in it!

  • Emily

    guacamole. always, guacamole. 🙂

  • Cynthia

    Homemade spicy lemon hummus!

  • lani trock

    raw cashew pesto! i love you.

    Guacamole with roasted jalapeños, onion and garlic. Rick Bayless made guacamole even more special by roasting some of the key ingredients.

  • sarah

    Guacamole!

  • Callahan Woodbery

    Aw man! That looks tasty! My favorite dip is spicy peanut sauce (basically peanut butter, soy sauce, and chili powder) super tasty on broccoli!

    I totally channeled you yesterday and listened to the JtB podcast while organizing my closet, letting Tracy, Our Lady of Organization guide my decluttering!

  • Bengi Selcukoglu

    Favorite dip would definitely be guacamole!

  • Natasha C

    Favorite dip is hummus, coincidentally! Followed by buffalo chicken dip as a close second

  • Jodie

    Favorite dip… it’s a toss up. Guacamole or anything basil – pesto, basil hummus, etc.

  • Allyn

    Healthy current me says hummus. Honest, doesn’t give a damn me says queso.
    Oooh, or guacamole. Or a good salsa.
    So many choices

  • Michaela

    My favorite dip is guacamole with hummus coming in as a close second.

  • Christine

    My favorite dip is plain greek yogurt + lemon juice or lemon curd + cumin. So delicious!

  • Gina

    Sour cream and onion! 🙂

  • Meagan B.

    I lovvvvvvve a good spinach artichoke dip. But that is very closely followed by red pepper hummus.

  • Adrienne K

    It’s a tie between black bean dip and guacamole!

  • jaime

    that cilantro oil sounds fantastic! i’m a lover of pretty much all dips, but my fav is probably a really fresh, garlicky salsa.

  • Marie

    Lately, I have been super obsessed with a Chipotle Lime dip made with a Greek yogurt base. SO GOOD on pretty much everything.

  • Liz Greene

    My favorite dip is my mom’s shrimp dip – amazing with Triscuits!! She’s passed on the recipe to me and it’s now a go-to whenever I have a party to go to!

  • Rachel

    My favorite dip is guacamole – the saltier the better.

  • Farah

    I love whipped feta dip! My favorite is lemon and dill.

  • Christine

    I can really get into kalamata olive aioli. So unexpected, but so delicious.

  • Mandy

    My favorite dip is definitely good old-fashioned corn dip! So easy to make and super delicious too!

  • Caitlin

    Favorite dip? That’s easy – hummus!! My favorite is roasted red pepper hummus, but plain ol’ regular ol’ hummus is delicious any day with a pita chip or piece of toasted bread…yum! Tracy, this hummus looks great, and I’ve got to try that cilantro oil!

  • Stacy

    It’s a tie between hummus and tzatziki, but this cilantro oil may tip the scale toward hummus!

  • Amy

    It’s not healthy at all, but I’m really enjoying leftover pimento cheese dip from Easter!

  • Laura T

    My mom makes a garlic feta dip that is delicious! This hummus with the oil looks great too! Can’t wait to try it!

    I love guacamole and anything with cilantro!

  • Christina

    Fresh salsa and guac… mmm spicy chunky creamy tasty goodness smooshed altogether on chip!

  • Leah G

    I really enjoy taco layered bean dip (so does my hubby). I have to say that I listened to your podcast with Joy the Baker today, and I’ve never left a comment(mainly because I thought they were a hassle for you to keep up with). That said, you do an amazing job!! I love your photos and recipes. Keep your chin up!! 🙂

  • Kathryn

    My favorite dip is hummus, and I looooove cilantro, so this is PERFECT! Yum!

    I think my favorite would have to be Spinach Artichoke dip.

    Gah, having a horrible time picking between tzatziki and guac. This is the Sophie’s choice of dips.

  • Lindsay

    I love trader joe’s white bean hummus, it’s amazing. Now that the weather is warming up though I’m excited to add some more tzatziki into the mix!

  • Sarah

    I don’t think I can pick one favorite dip! Hummus, guacamole, clam dip, spinach artichoke dip, even queso dips (as terrible for you as they are) all have a special place in my heart!

  • Allie

    My favorite dip is spinach dip. I could eat it all day, every day!

  • Rebecca @ Runner with an Appetite

    Being a Marylander, I love a nice hot crab dip. Can’t beat it!

  • Carrie

    Guacamole and salsa have my heart.

  • Kristin A.

    I’m secretly a huge fan of onion dip. I almost never eat it, and would never buy it, but if it’s at a party I can’t resist. My favorite dip that I’ve made is this Lemon, Pepper & Pecorino Dip from Real Simple (http://bit.ly/RJfg4M). It’s very rich, so you don’t indulge too much.

    • Deborah

      Total agreement with you on Onion! I love it too! Great recipe on bon appetite for a carmelized onion one!

  • Jess

    All dips. For real. I could never choose just one! My favorite & go to dinner is “picnic” with as many dips as I can find.

  • Peggy Urban

    Favorite dip this spring is mango onion garlic avocado lemon juice salsa. Yum! With some Boulder Canyon ancient grains chips! Yum Yum!

  • Zoë

    I’m such a salsa fiend. I’ll have it on any and everything.

    For me, it’s a toss-up between hummus and tzatziki.

  • erica barraca

    my favorite dip is definitely guacamole!

  • Kelly

    Vitamix!!!!!!! Thanks for the giveaway!! I really do love hummus and it’s the dip that I eat most often however, if health isn’t an issue, I would say my favorite dip is spinach-artichoke or something really cheesy!

  • Sarah

    I make my hummus with lots of garlic. I am such a garlic lover, but the cilantro is a great idea for some spring-time zip!

  • alison

    Favorite dip? Those layered Mexican dealies with salsa, cheese, chili, and the kitchen sink in it!

  • Kelly

    I love making a hummus-like dip with white beans instead of garbanzos!

  • Andrea M

    guacamole is my favorite!

  • Caty

    Guacamole!

  • Becky

    Guacamole!

  • Emily

    I don’t really love dips, isn’t that weird?!! But I did just try hummus for the first time and kind of fell in love with it. So I guess by default that’s my favorite?

  • Whitney

    My favorite dip is whipped feta! Add a little lemon, olive oil, salt + pepper…goes with just about anything you want to dip into it! YUM! 😉

  • Morgan

    Cheese dip… no shame here 🙂

    My favorite dip is salsa!

  • Kate Swarthout

    I would love to have a vitamix to make asparagus soup! I know it isn’t really a dip, however don’t you hate those strings from the asparagus messing up a perfectly good soup! The vitamix would take care of that!

  • Britt Carter

    Nothing beats a light classic hummus with lots of squeezed lemon! YUM!!!

  • Hanan

    My favorite dip is salsa!

  • Kelsey

    My favorite dip is a recipe for homemade salsa my dad got off the wall the bathroom of a Mexican restaurant.

    My favorite smoothie: Dates, cacao, strawberry, homemade almond milk, banana, and candied ginger. YUM.

  • madeleine

    My favorite dip is a super-naughty full fat cheesy spinach and artichoke dip! Can’t resist!

  • deborah

    I really don’t think of “hummus” as a dip since I use it on so many things. Think I am old school. I love a great onion dip. Grew up in Buffalo where BISON brand French onion dip was a staple at EVERY family gathering. Today like a upgraded variation – caramelized onion dip with some Krinkle cut potato chips 🙂

  • Kalila

    My favorite dip is mango avocado salsa!

  • Lauren @ La Dolce Pita

    really garlicky guacamole … YUM.

  • Kristen D.

    Salsa is my favorite dip, especially sweet & spicy ones.

    Can’t go wrong with a classic Tzatziki dip – greek yogurt, cucumber, garlic, and lemon!? YUM!

  • Jennifer

    I am in love with the crazy feta dip!

  • Jenn

    7-Layer Taco Dip, eaten when drunk, with best friends.

  • Julia

    What an awesome give-away!! My favorite dip is a good guacamole. Or anything with melted cheese…

  • Jen

    I’m with Cooper, give me some plain d hummus any day!

  • Kimia

    My favorite dip is call Mast-o-moussir, roughly translated to yogurt and shallot. It’s a blend of rich, thick Greek-style yogurt, minced shallot, and fresh dill. It’s amazing on flatbread, with pita, or alongside any middle eastern dish!

  • Emily

    I love salsas that have fruit in them… Fresh pineapple salsa, yum!

  • Kate

    GUACAMOLE!! So easy to throw together and delicious on so many things… or right off the spoon. 😉

  • katie c.

    I have been pining for a Vitamix for what feels like forever! Favorite dip is red pepper hummus, but this would also be perfect for daily am smoothies- greek yogurt, flax, chia, spinach, frozen blueberries, strawberries, mango and pineapple and fresh sliced banana

  • Claire

    BUFFCHICKDIP. (Uh, Buffalo Chicken Dip.) Not nearly as healthy as this hummus, but daaaannnngggg it’s good stuff.

  • Catie

    I love good whipped, baked feta and parsley petso dip!

  • Kate B

    There’s a Vegetarian Times asian edamame dip that my husband I make regularly and it is DELIGHTFUL.

  • Caley

    My favorite dip is hummus for sure! Especially with roasted red peppers and garlic. That vitamix is just what I need!

  • Jackie

    I think it is a tie between guacamole and lemon/garlic hummus! I usually buy wholefoods brand hummus, but I would love to try making my own:)

  • Erica Zamora

    I love a sour cream, goat cheese and rosemary dip paired with roasted garlic on baguette! Trust me. So simple and it will kill you dead, it is so delicious.

    =-)

  • Kerri

    My favorite dip is chunky guacamole! A close second is salsa. When I was younger I’d end up just eating it with a spoon so doesn’t really count as a dip in that case 🙂 What an awesome giveaway – I’ve been dreaming of a Vitamix for so long!

  • Dandi D

    I love roasted garlic hummus!

  • Vanessa

    My favorite dip is anything mayo-based – like mayo mixed with garlic, chives, onion powder and cheese powder. You can dip pizza in it, chicken skewers, meatballs, fish fingers, french fries. Om nom nom nom. Straight to my thighs! 🙂

  • Mandy

    I LOVE hummus. I can eat it on or with just about anything. My latest favorite is on raw green beans!

  • Sharon Miodovsky

    Anything Shutterbean recommends, duh!

  • Dani

    Hummus, salsa, tzatziki…you name it, I love it.

    My favorite dip is buffalo hummus. I also make it myself! You can’t go wrong with garlic and hot sauce!

  • Samantha Haltman

    Wasabi edamame Hummus. MMMMM. so good on everything.

  • Mama Jane

    Guacamole is more like a food group than a dip, but if it counts as a dip, it is my fave!
    Our old Oster blender is on its last legs and I’ve been dying for a Vitamix. I have a smoothie for breakfast every day! I would completely freak out if I won. Thanks, Tracy!

  • Erin

    I have a tie for my favorite dip! My husband’s homemade guac OR Trader Joe’s Cilantro Jalapeño Hummus. I could eat the whole container!!

  • Stephanie

    I don’t have it as often as I’d like but babaganoush is a favorite. Smokey, roasted eggplant..yum!

  • Marissa

    It’s a tie between hummus and guac! Hard to pick. I do eat hummus daily (or multiple times daily) so that might win.

  • Lorie O.

    I’m a sucker for guacamole or any type of nacho/taco dip! I need a Vitamix in my life!!

  • Anemilyb

    Oh I do indeed love the hummus, but I especially love it with a huge dollop of Aardvark hot sauce. Then I’ll dip veggies and plantain chips in it all the live long day!

  • Caitlin

    My favorite is the Trader Joe’s sour cream and onion dip. It’s probably so bad for me but I can’t resist it!

  • Nicole Dykstra

    Favorite dip: All the Things Pesto with cannellini beans and almonds. Yum.

  • Megan

    I LOVE hummus, but my favorite dip really has to be queso. Mmmmm – cheesy. Thanks for the contest Tracy!

  • amy

    dreamy vitamix, guacamole is my favorite dip!

  • Sarah

    My fave dip…has got to be hummus! All sorts of variations, you can mix literally anything in with those gorgeous garbanzos. To win a Vitamix would be so dreamy- fingers crossed!

  • christina

    my favorite dip is a white bean hummus-y thing that you put everything bagel toppings in. it is fucking good and white beans are fucking cheap, just like me.

  • Morgan

    Hummus, pesto, or spinach and kale dip!

  • Dona

    Favorite dip most definitely guacamole with salsa coming in second and hummus a close third!

  • brandi

    my Texan best friend introduced me to real queso a few years back…nothing beats a good queso with freshly made tortilla chips! ::homer drool::

  • Caitlin

    My favorite dip is a cucumber dill dip that my grandmother used to make for me every summer. Summer had officially started once he made the dip. It goes with every kind of vegetable and even good on turkey wraps. I am kind of obsessed with this dip.

  • Ali

    Oh man, my favorite dip…I think it’s a toss up between hot crab, vidalia onion and queso. Om nom nom!

  • Kristen

    French Onion Dip with Ruffles is my ultimate guilty pleasure!

    umm.. seriously?! this sounds delish

    my favorite dip is harissa- particularly a version by cava mezzo grill in DC, they’re now sold at whole foods. so. so. good

  • Tyler Orizotti

    My favorite and an absolute crowd-pleaser is Black Bean Jalapeno Hummus. Great on its own as a dip or as a spread on a sandwich or panini:)!

  • Kelsey

    My absolute favorite is babaghanoush! Roasted eggplant and tahini and cumin deliciousness. Tastes like a smokey herbed vegetable creamy dip! And about 4 ingredients total 🙂

  • Jessica L.

    I just made a batch of hummus today! Either it or salsa is probably my favorite dip.

  • Jennifer Cullen

    My favorite is a garlicky, smoky babaganush.

  • Alex

    My dad’s side of the family makes the most delicious dip lovingly known as ‘shrimp dip’, with blue cheese, tiny shrimp, and grated onion in a cream cheese base. It sounds a little weird, but it is so good!

  • Ashley @ Hudson on the Potomac

    My favorite dip is hummus!!! I make my own by swapping greek yogurt for the tahini.

  • Whitney B.

    My fav. dip is this cheesy chorizo concoction my father in law makes. Pair it with freshly fried tortilla chips and i could eat it like an entree!

  • ayris

    Guacamole is my favorite!

  • Shaina Brown

    guilty pleasure – french onion dip. now, how can we put a healthy spin on that?

  • Emily

    I was going to say hummus for bonus points but let’s be real, GUACAMOLE!!!

  • christina

    Homemade ranch dip. Once you make it from scratch you will never go back.

  • Emily

    I have to pick ONE favorite? I’m going to have to go with guacamole. I can make a meal out of that stuff.

  • Emily

    My favorite dip is guacamole! I can eat loads and loads of it. I prefer mine to have plenty of lime juice, salt, and SPICE from onion and jalapeno! I would love a Vitamix!

  • Molly Martin

    Crab dip… Especially with the classy Club crackers

  • Sarah O

    Jalapeno cilantro hummus! Or onion dip.

  • Kelsey

    My favorite dip has to be GUACAMOLE. All day, err day.

  • Colleen Chido

    Love me some spinach artichoke dip n guilty pleasure of buffalo chicken wing dip

  • Megan B.

    Carmelized sweet onion dip… delish!

  • Eleanor Thadani

    Truffle hummus! Just a classic hummus recipe with a smudge of truffle oil mixed in. Amazing! Great on veggies, amazing on pita chips… I honestly eat it with a spoon sometimes.

  • Rebecca

    I love tzaziki dipping sauce!

  • Maggie

    Guacamole! Leftovers are a mathematical impossibility.

  • Maggie

    Guacamole! Leftovers are a mathematical impossibility.

  • alisonofagun

    The old school spinach dip from the veggie soup mix, with water chestnuts. AW YISS!

  • maggie b

    such and awesome giveaway! my favorite dip by far is green goddess. but, some french onion with ruffles potato chips is a close runner up:)

  • Hannah W.

    My favorite dip is hummus with chickpeas, edamame, and lots of garlic! Also, guacamole.

  • Shelley

    favorite dip is edamame hummus: both the Trader joes and homemade variety! 🙂

  • Melissa

    Pretzels in honey mustard dip. Tortilla chips in guacamole. Pita chips and veggies in homemade fairytale eggplant dip. Everything tastes better with dip!

  • Jane

    Greek Yogurt Spinach Dip!

  • Amanda Neill

    Roasted garlic hummus is my safe, healthy, answer. But the truth is pimento cheese dip and only if my friend Kacey makes it. Mind blowingly delicious…..

  • Daniela

    Spinach dip, but I also settle for artichoke…

  • Beverly

    Ooh, I love me some hummus, but I don’t think I could live without a good ol’ basic sour cream and onion dip!

  • Emalie

    My favorite dip is hands down muhammara. It’s a spicy Syrian dip consisting of roasted red peppers, walnuts, breadcrumbs and some pomegranate molasses for tang. It’s good on crackers and bread, but also slathered on chicken or as a sauce for fish. Love it!

  • Samantha Lipsie

    We enjoy white bean dip – cannellini beans puréed with garlic, lemon, olive oil and garnished with chopped parsley. Served with toasted pita chips.

  • Anna

    I come from Texas, the land where it’s appropriate (and sometimes expected) to serve queso at every meal. Favorite dip, hands down. White queso with chilis. Yellow queso with cilantro. Chorizo. Onions. On a tortilla. On a chip. On everything. Best stuff ever.

  • Libby

    I’ve been so into dips lately and here I am without a food processor OR a decent blender. Enter: this contest.
    I love any dip that’s got a greek yogurt base that I can dip my fresh veggies into. Please add feta (to everything all the time always).

  • Nicole

    I could down an entire bag of Tostitos Multigrain Scoops with a batch of homemade pico de gallo. Although it might defeat the purpose of a healthy dip. I would love to try this hummus. It looks dreamy!

  • Kate Donohue

    Ooooohhh… It’s like asking me to pick a favorite cocktail (Moscow Mule I’m lookin at you). But I’d have to say a good ol fashioned creamy artichoke dip is my número uno. If we’re gettin really specific here, then I’d also add that heating it up in a cast iron skillet over an open fire deep in the trees is the best way to experience this deliciousness.

  • Cara

    Guacamole!!

  • CC

    It’s a tough one…I’d have to go with bean dip, or wait hot artichoke dip.

  • Cheryl

    Guacamole! Or hummus with a little tahini…yum so good!

  • Ashley

    Fave dip: guacamole with lots of lime and black pepper and finely chopped onion. But I’m also addicted to buffalo sauce to dip (or drip) on almost anything. Love the addition of an herb-oil to the top of hummus to keep it interesting!

    • Sharon McGrath

      My favorite dip is guacamole but hummus is a close second! Thanks for the great recipe!!

  • Christine

    Guacamole. And onion dip. And spinach dip. Mmmmm….dip. 🙂

  • Cory

    Although hummus is my most-consumed dip because I try to act like a responsible adult most of the time, my favorite dip is queso! You can make your own by tossing cubed or grated cheese with cornstarch, then melting it in a saucepan along with some evaporated milk. Add any spices your heart desires — I love roasted green chiles!

  • Sasha

    My favorite is Spinach, Articoke & Goat Cheese Dip from a restaurant in Toronto. Its so good, I could just eat that for the rest of my life!

  • Hilary

    If I’m being honest it’s Buffalo Chicken Dip! But if I’m ‘trying’ to be healthy it would be spicy hummus!

  • Janine Bandick

    It has to be my guacamole and it’s a family hit. Every get together they ask for it you think they would be sick of it but no:)

  • Adrianna from A Cozy Kitchen

    Spinach Dip! AHH! That’s my favorite dip. I want a Vitamix pretty badly; here’s to hoping I win!

    It’s a three way tie between guacamole, hummus or BLT dip!

  • Emilee

    This looks amazing!! My favorite dip is definitely guacamole, but especially guacamole WITH salsa verde! The combination is just the very best thing.

  • Beth Summerfield

    Oh me oh my. The possibilities are endless! Roasted red pepper hummus is a strong contender, but I have to say that guacamole owns my heart. I. Love. It! Thanks for the opportunity! Cheers!

    I made a dill pickle hummus the other day for a girls night that was pretty heavenly…a friend asked if I bought it at the farmers market! Totally made my day 🙂

  • Kate

    I could eat my weight in roasted red pepper hummus. But, tzanziki is a close second.

  • Lauren

    I thought about this question for way too long! Mmmm, so many yummy dips to chose from; if I had to choose just one it’d be a yummy homemade onion dip!

  • Kelly Bowman

    Eggplant and tahini spread with toasted baguette or chilled cucumber slices!

  • Jennie Ridley

    Pimento cheese please! White cheddar, a little cream cheese, grated onion and dukes mayo (obviously). Yum!

    Tracy! Just listened to the podcast & way to hit it strong with a giveaway. You have people like me that love what you do & appreciate everything you put in. As far as favorite dip goes, looks like it might be this one. Or I’ve seen recipes for corn & jalapeño hummus. Mmmm.

  • Chelsea

    roasted garlic hummus!! always and forever <3 <3

  • Kaylen

    My favorite, all-time, 100% dip is guacamole!!

  • Emily R

    An easier question to answer would be, what’s NOT your favorite dip? I love them all…but it’s probably a cross between guacamole and spinach artichoke dip. 🙂

  • Katie Rice

    Caramelized Onion Dip or Guacamole its a big toss up. Both are full of savory deliciousness.

  • maya

    oh dips, i love you. spinach artichoke, guac, onion, homemade hummos, tzakiki, teramisalata are just a few. would love a vitamix!

  • Matthew Plympton

    Baba ghanouj! If you can grill the eggplant first it makes that much more better!

    My favorite dip – hummus! You can never go wrong with it – I have even used peanut butter instead of tahini or pine nuts and it’s delicious! Such a versatile dip!

  • Kerianne

    hmm…I love Mediterranean style hummus dips (hummus topped with olives, feta, tomatoes and basil) – yum!

  • Jessica

    Sour cream and onion dip!

  • Jenn

    I’m not sure there’s a dip that exists that I do not love. Guacamole is pretty high on the list. Hummus too, gotta be spicy. OOooooo what about good old fashioned cheese ball dip?

  • Tonia

    Favorite savory dip= hummus- preferably homemade with lots of lemon juice and cumin!

    I love hummus with roasted red peppers and I also love Buffalo chicken dip.

    like a sweet hummus. It’s quite amazing and I make it every
    year for an Oscar’s weekend party. <3

  • Casey W

    I know this will be so unoriginal, but i really just love homemade hummus. I could eat a gallon of it. Perhaps I shouldn’t have a Vitamix?!?! But I promise if I win I’ll make lots of green smoothies to balance out all the hummus and milkshakes!

  • Erin Jacobs

    Looooove anything spicy and lots of tzatziki!!!

  • Shabnam Sheikh

    Roasted red bell pepper hummus! This looks amazing though, I’ll have to try it.

  • veronica

    My husband and I are hooked on a cheese dip that they make at Fred Meyer. It could probably use a makeover to do away with the mayo but it is: shredded jarlsberg cheese, mayo, and sliced red onion. Creamy delicious and addictive. Favorite smoothie ingredients: ripe banana, cinnamon, milk, and spinach with a drop of almond extract.

  • Stephanie Zhang

    Smoked salmon cream cheese dip! but guacamole is a close favorite too! 🙂

  • Christina Biggerstaff

    My favorite dip is definitely guacamole! I like all different varieties. Recently, I tried one that had pomegranate seeds in it and it was delicious.

  • Noah

    There is no dip better on this earth and my grandmas homemade salsa. She always keeps me loaded down with a fresh supply.

  • eulalia

  • Sarah Mac

    Oh my goodness! This recipe reminds me of the first time I had a bit of my favorite dip! It had never occurred to me to put black beans in hummus instead of garbanzos. And then use cilantro, lime, and olive oil. It’s great on everything!!
