Thank you BUSH’S® Hummus Made Easy for introducing an easy way to make hummus Dip and for sponsoring today’s post.
I have a confession to make…I was scared to try hummus. If you told me I was going to host a party that showcased hummus and that I would end up liking many of the recipes, I probably would have called you a liar. The beauty of blogging is that it pushes me to go out and try new things that I would have never tried before.
This type of dish was always something that I saw at the grocery store and just kept strolling past. My co-workers would crave it for a mid-afternoon snack. I still wasn’t convinced… until last week.
I hosted a party to introduce friends to the new BUSH’S® Hummus Made Easy products and I fell in love with a few of the recipes we made. (The Layered Dip was the bomb!) There are so many easy hummus recipes you can make.
How to Throw a Hummus-Inspired House Party
Shop for Supplies
First, decide which hummus recipes you will make for your house party. Once you have your menu planned, it’s time to go shopping at your local Walmart. Find all three flavors, Classic, Southwest Black Bean and Roasted Red Pepper, in the canned bean aisle. As for refreshments, I would go with water, juice and/or wine. If you choose to serve wine, I suggest serving a Pinot Grigio and/or Pinot Noir. You don’t want to pair a heavy wine with this dish.
Decorate your party theme in bright, fun colors
I am a tiny bit obsessed with chalkboard crafts right now, so I made a few signs to label what each dish was. Nothing really matched, but all of my colors were bright and bold to compare with the dishes being served. Oh, and I also turned on some jams real loud to get inspired. Hope my neighbors didn’t watch my dance moves in the process while I had my windows opened!
Prep, Plan and Host
Prep the majority of the recipes day of and save one dish to prep in front of your guests to show them the process. If you choose to make the layered dip dish, you can prep most of your ingredients the day before and store in the fridge.
Don’t feel intimidated to show your guess how easy it is to make a dip live at your party. See how effortless it is to make BUSH’S® Hummus Made Easy.
Adding jalapeños, roasted red peppers or even sour cream can spice up any of the dips. The fun part is customizing your dish to your own taste. Offer your guests the chance eat their dips with bell peppers, cucumbers, pita chips, and crackers. Everyone has a different preference when it comes to enjoying hummus.
BUSH’S® Hummus Made Easy is gluten free, vegetarian and has no artificial preservatives.
It’s Go Time
Call up your friends and get ready to show them how easy it is to make delicious hummus at home. In the meantime, try all the flavors for yourself – and prepare for all the compliments that will come your way.
We had a blast hanging out and sampling all the recipes. If you are looking for a reason to get your girlfriends together, this theme is perfect. After the party, I surveyed the guests to see which recipe was their favorite and everyone was all over the place meaning the party was a definite crowd pleaser.
My favorite BUSH’S® Hummus dip was the Black Bean dip. What is your favorite recipe? Don’t forget these hummus recipes to help you plan your own party!
