Bush's Hummus Made Easy Disclosure

Hungry for loaded nachos but don’t feel like going out? I’ve made mention before how much this family loves Tex-Mex, especially chicken tacosbeef tacos, and creamy chicken enchiladas.

Usually, when we’re going out to eat, we’re going for Mexican. Loaded nachos are a favorite all ’round, as is a nice snack of roasted red pepper hummus.

I’ve got a delicious recipe for you that will make you re-think ever using refried beans again.

We had a crazy busy week last week. We had a week filled with doctor’s appointments, a midwife appointment, minor surgery for Dan, and more, not to mention homeschooling and work.

We’re trying to get as much done and meet as many commitments as we possibly can before this baby boy arrives. But by the time the end of the week arrived, we were all beat and needed something super easy to snack on, not to mention something fairly easy to eat for dinner.

As I mentioned, we love roasted red pepper hummus.

We’ll eat it with crackers, tortilla chips, pita bread… It’s a favorite snack around here but also tends to be a bit pricey, meaning we don’t always keep it on hand.

But that has changed since we’ve been introduced to Bush’s Hummus Made Easy. Available at Walmart in 3 delicious flavors (Classic, Roasted Red Pepper, and Southwest Black Bean), it’s also friendly to our budget.

Not only that, but it’s easily made in literally seconds, I kid you not.

All you need is a can of beans, the pouch of hummus, and a food processor or blender (I used my Ninja).

We chose to use Bush’s Garbanzos (or Chick Peas), which happened to be conveniently located right next to the Hummus Made Easy pouches in the store, to mix up a batch of Roasted Red Pepper Hummus Made Easy.

And you know what? In my opinion, it tastes better than the stuff that’s already pre-mixed and packaged in the deli. And it’s cheaper! Win win!

On top of that, it has no artificial preservatives, and it’s made with real ingredients like olive oil, tahini, roasted red bell peppers, and spices.

Even more importantly, it meets my official taste tester’s seal of approval.

I really like how versatile it is. There are a ton of recipes on the Hummus Made Easy site, and when I saw a recipe for a 7 layer dip and perused Pinterest just a bit for even more inspiration, I knew I wanted to make some sort of nachos, leading me to the idea of Loaded Nachos, only without refried beans and made with hummus instead.

Honestly, these nachos are all about the layering. You have a layer of tortilla chips, dollops of hummus…

That layer of Roasted Red Pepper Hummus Made Easy makes all the difference in the world. It adds a flavor that you just can’t get otherwise.

These nachos were the most flavorful nachos I’ve ever made; they were far from your typical, boring nachos.
