Okay. Let me be honest. I love this dip. It has Indian flavors or cumin, coriander, turmeric, and garam masala that will make it stand out from the crowd and have people asking what’s in it but not over power their taste buds. This is great with pita chips or naan. Another great option for eating this would be to spread the chickpea base into a wrap and load it up with the toppings and spinach (even chicken if you’d like) and eat it as a sandwich.
