Homemade roasted red pepper hummus.

The Daily Meal's editors, contributors, and readers dig into some pretty great restaurants, festivals, and meals. There's not always enough time to give a full review of a restaurant or describe in depth why a place, its food, and the people who prepare it are noteworthy, so Snackshot of the Day does what photographs do best, rely on the image to do most of the talking.

Hummus is sort of a grocery shopping staple — there are so many varieties of delicious flavors at Trader Joe's, it's hard not to grab a tub for a quick snack. Hummus is one of the easiest snacks to make at home, though, and it's as customizable as you want. Throw chickpeas, olive oil, tahini, salt, and whatever else you want to jazz it up, into a food processor and blend.
