Zucchini Hummus Wraps: #HummusMadeEasy

This post is sponsored by Arkansas Women Bloggers to promote Bush’s Hummus Made Easy. I received free product to sample for this review and am being compensated for my time. However, this all photos and ideas on this blog are my own.Hummus Made Easy

Hello May! It’s a busy month ahead with Kennedy’s high school graduation, summer plans to make for the kiddos, and several birthdays (including my own!). And with the warmer weather, I am in need of some fresh menu ideas for my family. My go-to soups and slower cooker dishes are too heavy for the hot Arkansas summer, so this month I’m going to try out some all-new-to-me recipes. Hopefully you will like them too.

Hummus Made EasyMy first recipe to share is Zucchini Hummus Wraps. I made the wraps for the first time today, and it was so fresh and delicious. The basis of this recipe is Bush’s Classic Hummus Made Easy and a can of Bush’s Garbanzo Beans. To make the hummus, you just rinse and drain the garbanzo beans and combine with the packet of Hummus Made Easy. You can do this in a blender, a food processor, or using an immersion blender like I did today.Hummus Made Easy

Creamy Southwest Chicken Soup

I love my pressure cooker! I got home at 5 p.m. tonight and knew that I needed dinner ready around 5:30 p.m. — Anthony needed to be at church for worship team practice at 6 p.m., look so I made this yummy recipe in the pressure cooker. I used a homemade taco seasoning recipe instead of the store-bought pre-packaged crap — I used an empty pill bottle to store the extra. The original soup recipe calls for cooking it a slow cooker. Instead I used my pressure cooker, and it was done in just 12 minutes on high.

Instead of tortilla chips, I lightly coated two whole wheat tortillas with olive oil and a sprinkle of cajun seasoning, then put them under the broiler until lightly crisp. Dinner was a hit! Anthony only had time for one bowl, but he said not to put it away — he’d eat more as soon as he got home. Now, that’s success.
