RITZ Mediterranean Tapas

This post has been sponsored by RITZ.  They are kicking off a summer of snacking and kitchen creativity and I’m here to show you all a fun snack you can try this summer. As always, all opinions are my own 🙂

RITZ is all about bringing people together to celebrate the moments that make life rich, no matter how big or small. This summer, when you’re hosting a backyard barbecue or a Fourth of July picnic or a family reunion, I want you to try to my RITZ Mediterranean Tapas. It’s basically been tri-colored hummus topped on RITZ crackers. Let’s face it, food brings people together, especially fun food like these adorable RITZ creations!

I start with my standard authentic Lebanese style hummus recipe. Then I divide up the hummus into three equal parts. I save one as the original kind.

For the second portion of the recipe, I blend spinach and parsley with 1/3 of the base hummus in the food processor and get a beautiful green hummus. Kinda looks like guacamole! Kinda tastes amazing!

For the final portion of the recipe, I blend sundried tomatoes and red pepper flakes with 1/3 of the base hummus in the food processor to make red hummus! It has a nice kick and a rich flavor!

And just like that, you’ve added some glitz to your RITZ crackers! It’s delicious and unexpected, yet so simple! And something you can easily incorporate to your summer get-togethers. Think Mediterranean Mezza (tapas) theme night 😉

Why I love this RITZ Mediterranean Tapas

  • Everyone is already a fan of hummus so tri-colored hummus is three times the fun – a true party favorite!
  • The recipe is super simple to make at home
  • If you’re in a time-crunch, you can make this recipe even easier by using store-bought hummus as your base
  • It’s dairy-free, vegan, and full of protein!

Thank you RITZ for sponsoring this post on how to make this RITZ Mediterranean Tapas with tri-colored hummus! Now go on, and spruce up your summer get-togethers with RITZ crackers.
