Making Instant Pot Hummus is super easy and fast, and you have tons of options as far as adding (or subtracting) ingredients. We like ours with extra garlic and I usually add cayenne, too!

Combine chickpeas, tahini, water, garlic, lemon juice, cumin, and salt in a food processor and pulse until smooth and lump free.
