If you're like us, you've probably eaten an entire bowl of hummus at one time or another -- it's just that good. Most consumers will buy hummus from the market, where it's available in many different flavors.

But if you want to take your average hummus to the next level, you'll want to try some mix-ins.

See the slideshow for 10 ways you can reinvent hummus -- some ideas riff on traditional Middle Eastern flavors, like tahini or lemon, but others give hummus a Mediterranean flavor (sun-dried tomatoes or rosemary-infused oil) or even Mexican (chipotle peppers). For our base, we use a standard hummus recipe.
