Spicy Horseradish Hummus

This Superbowl snack was inspired by a recent purchase by Shaun from Stanley’s Market in Toledo, Ohio – a place he remembers well from his childhood. He picked up a few treats for us [kielbasa, pierogies and horseradish] from the Polish market when he sent his dad some sausage as a birthday gift. The horseradish added a great kick to a traditional hummus. Nothing beats the sinus-burning quality of horseradish or wasabi to me. Plus, the chunkiness of homemade hummus rocks. Yes, hummus rocks.
