    I Googled around and came up with this site which has some hummus
    variations that sound interesting.

    http://mideastfood.about.com/od/midd...ery/Hummus.htm

    and this one:

    http://www.sheknows.com/articles/794...f-chickpea-dip

    and this:

    http://www.theveggietable.com/recipe...ariations.html



    I guess I just never went beyond my own recipe for hummus and never
    really thought about messing around with it.
    Now I'm hungry for some....

    Some of those I would try, most probably the salsa hummus and the
    guacamole hummus, but I am not sure I would like the chocolate or the
    peanut butter. lol Who knows, maybe I should give it a try. :-P I do
    love hummus.

    I think peanut butter would be ok, but you'd have to give up on the
    idea
    of PB&J. It would be a good filling for celery, and probably would
    make
    a good dip for other vegetables. Rather reminiscent of Asian sesame
    noodles. Many Westernized recipes for Chinese sesame noodles
    (I think Sundays at Moosewood is the source for my recipe) have
    peanut butter, either as a substitute for or in addition to sesame
    paste.

    Frankly, I am disinclined to even try exotically flavored hummus. I will
    admit that I always include cilantro, which I thought was a necessary
    ingredient. About the only variation that I use is a Mexican one with
    lime juice and only a few drops of sesame oil.

    There are quite a few recipes for hummus with peanut butter, but it tends to
    fade into the background in the typical quantities used. I think I'd be
    interested in a chocolate hummus if it were treated like the chocolate in
    Mexican mole; I don't think I'd care much for a sweet hummus. For that
    matter, just about any pipián recipe has possibilities for adaptation using
    hummus instead of ground seeds.

    I like a nice roasted red pepper hummus. TJ's has a wonderful
    chipotle hummus. I've been buying that lately.

    I've had roasted garlic hummus. Yummy. Also the sun-dried tomato
    one sounds lovely. I'll have to see if I can find some. Surely TJ's
    must have one. (They have so many, though, that I never seems to be
    able to look over everything they have as people are always wanting
    me out of their way.)

    what's out there.

    Perhaps, I should mention that I always include garlic in hummus and
    roasted is a good alternative.

    I've never made my own, but I usually get "extra garlic" hummus.
    Depending on the brand, I sometimes add lemon juice, or a touch
    of olive oil.

    There's a restaurant here (not a Middle Eastern one) that serves
    hummus with a bit of chermoula (there's your cilantro); that's
    pretty tasty. Their hummus is also a little chunky--I have been
    thinking of making my own to see if I can achieve a slight
    chunkiness.

    To any of you who make their own hummus......do the canned garbanza
    beans make decent hummus? or must I strt from scratch? and how long
    would I cook the canned garbanza beans to use for hummus. Any personal
    tried and true recipes would be welcomed. Thanks.
    BTW my daughter brought me a pint container of hummus from TJ's, I
    nearly dropped my teeth when she said it was 10 $ for the container.
    Yes it was delicious, except nearly choking everytime I thought about
    the price!!!!!

    So do I; and its popular at shared meals.
    I make another hummus variant using (canned) butterbeans instead of
    the chickpeas.

    I generally use the canned. My cousin in Israel just gave me a hint. He
    said to drain the canned beans and cook them for an additional 10
    minutes in water, then puree them. I use garlic, lemon juice salt and
    tahini in mine. I don't think you can make real hummus without tahini.

    I usually garnish it with fresh chopped parsley, but I like the thought
    of using cilantro.

    You can make good hummus using the canned garbanzo beans just fine.
    Especially if you are going to use any 'extra' ingredients.

    Here's my favorite hummus recipe, it's very easy to make.

    Canned work just fine. Just drain and rinse to remove unneeded salt.

    Just by coincidence, I cooked some dried garbanzos yesterday before I
    started reading this thread. I treated them like dried beans -- soak,
    change the water, simmer for an hour, drain, rinse. They turned out a
    little on the soft side for soup (I like them tender but firm), but
    should be perfect for hummus. I really like garbanzos in vegetable soup.

    Everybody uses canned garbanzos(*). No cooking required. It's
    its pretty cheap to make at home. About $1.50/pound.

    It's not exactly roasted garlic but... I've made hummus by first
    sauteing a goodly portion of minced garlic in olive oil, then allowing
    to cool and adding the oil and the garlic to the food processor with
    the chickpeas, lemon juice, salt, and tahini.

    yes,

    Zero; they've been cooked in the canning process. Just drain, rinse,
    and use. Tahini comes in a jar, ready to use. If you use a food
    processor you can make
    delicious cheap hummus in half a minute. It's very good for you too.
