Smoked Paprika Hummus ft. July's Spice of the Month

Paprika is July's SPICE OF THE MONTH

Paprika is a ground spice made from dried red fruits of the larger and sweeter varieties of the bell pepper. Typically, just labeled as paprika, this spice adds vibrant colour to any dish. It can be sprinkled as a garnish over devilled eggs or potato salad, or used as a flavouring for meat rubs.
