Delicious homemade Roasted Red Pepper Hummus is easy and quick with just a few ingredients. It’s made with chickpeas, roasted red peppers, tahini, and spices. It is creamy and so delicious!
I didn’t love hummus until I started making it on my own. There really is nothing like freshly made, still warm homemade hummus.
And luckily, it’s super easy to make! You don’t even have to cook anything.
Roasted red pepper hummus is my favorite kind because it’s a little smoky, a little sweet, and just has so much flavor. Plus, when you make hummus at home, you can make it as smooth and creamy as you want!

How To Make Roasted Red Peppers
- Prepare. Cut 4 – 5 red peppers in half and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
- Roast. Bake at 450F for 15 – 20 minutes. The skins should be very dark and the pepper will be soft.
- Steam. Transfer the hot peppers to a ziploc bag and close tightly. Let them steam themselves for about 10 minutes.
