Decadent Hummus

I have made this recipe for my family for several years now and it never disappoints. My kids take it on ski trips to share with the team and everyone always loves it! They always want to know why our hummus is a dark brown color. It’s the olives! The recipe is equally great without the olives and/or feta. Wonderful with pita bread, chips, crackers, or veggies!

Original recipe makes 16 servings


2 (15 ounce) cans garbanzo beans, drained
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
1/4 cup tahini
1/4 cup sweet chili sauce
15 pitted kalamata olives
3 cloves garlic, or more to taste
2 teaspoons dried basil
2 teaspoons ground cumin
2 teaspoons dried dill weed
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon water, or as needed
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley, or as needed
1 teaspoon olive oil, or to taste
