The first time I tried a baked hummus appetizer was on our Hampton’s Retreat. We made Liz’ Mexican Layered Hummus Dip and I was SOLD. I knew I had to make a version for LCK that you guys would absolutely love, too!

It’s creamy, healthy, lightened-up, so flavorful, and made with only FIVE ingredients. You can also prep this earlier in the day, or the day before, and then bake it right before serving. Party WIN.

    Saw this on your Instagram post and immediately changed dinner plans! We cut the recipe in half, baked it in two small ramekins, and had our own personal bowls of heaven. Try it with mini sweet peppers sliced in half, absolutely fantastic!

    This dip was abosuletly amazing and so much healthier! I used blue cheese instead of cheddar for the top and everyone loved it 🙂 thank you!

  3. Have you tried making dairy-free with So Delicious brand cheese? I’m going to try it …. this looks delicious. Love your recipes!!!!

    This is my favorite! I’ve made it about 5 times and it is ALWAYS a hit. A much healthier alternative to the traditional buffalo chicken dip. Thank you!!

  5. Could this be adapted to a crock pot? I have three small crock pots I use for parties with dips. I have a buffalo chicken dip I use frequently, but this one is SO much healthier.
