Notes & Tips:

You can play around with the Chummus to get the consistency that you prefer. Just keep in mind; the more water you add, the more liquidy it will be, the more oil you add, the more smooth it will be but you will lose some of the flavor. If you don’t like cilantro but still want the fresh flavors of a fresh herb, you can use mint or basil! Using limes are ideal but if you can’t get them, lemons are a close second.
