Spicy Peanut Butter Hummus

Spicy Peanut Butter Hummus; clean, vegan, and gluten freeYou know when you make a mistake in cooking and you think it will turn out bad, or gross?  Or you think of food combos that shouldn’t really go together but in actuality could be really good?  Oh the possibilities!  Here is my Spicy Peanut Butter Hummus.

So the mistake came when I had two small containers for my work meals.  I take my breakfast, lunch and snack to work everyday.  I have one small container for peanut butter and one for hummus for my carrots.  Well I had washed out the pb container but forgot to do the hummus one.  I accidentally put the pb in the hummus container.  Well I didn’t notice that error until I was eating my apple and pb and saw the hummus – I almost stopped eating the pb because I didn’t want to be tainted with the hummusy-pb.  I thought it would be nasty.

Well color me surprised!  I ate it and it was good!  So I decided to come home and try and make peanut butter hummus.  I decided to spice it up with some jalepeno.  This turned out really good; it has a faint peanut butter flavor with nice bite of jalepeno to it.
