If making too many versions of my super popular Mexican Baked Hummus Dip is wrong, I don’t want to be right. After all, is there such a thing as having too many easy appetizer recipes on hand? Not in my book.

For this Greek-inspired baked hummus dip I decided to brown ground lamb with garlic powder, oregano and a pinch of cayenne before folding it with Sabra Roasted Pine Nut Hummus. If you don’t have lamb on hand, ground beef works well too. Of course, you can also swap out meat for chick peas to keep it vegetarian like I did in my Vegetarian Mexican Baked Hummus Dip.

Want to avoid toasted pine nuts? Olive Tapenade or Roasted Red Pepper Sabra hummus would work great for this recipe too. To top, layer with crumbled feta cheese before baking until slightly melted and gooey.

To serve, top the entire dish with your favorite crunchy toppings. Diced tomatoes, minced parsley, chopped banana peppers and more crumbled feta cheese are all great options. Get creative and make it your own.

Your pita bread is waiting.

    Is there another Hummus we can use? I know you partner with Sabra but they are connected to Israel and it’s occupation of Palestine. Thanks.
