Hummus with Spiced Beef, Feta and Mint

Easy hummus recipe with spiced ground beef, feta cheese and fresh mint. This one is so easy and perfect served with pita bread.

Hummus Recipe with Spiced Ground Beef

We spice ground beef up with smoky cumin, cinnamon, coriander and spicy cayenne pepper. Then, we add the spiced beef to the top of  smooth creamy hummus.

How to Make Hummus with Spiced Up Beef, Feta and Mint

The beef can be made in minutes, all we do is cook it in a skillet and add lots of zesty spices like cumin and cayenne pepper. Then, add the beef to creamy hummus and serve with pita wedges or vegetables.

You can buy your own hummus or make our simple hummus recipe (it takes about 10 minutes). Plus, if you would prefer something other than ground beef, try using ground lamb, chicken or even turkey.

To really make the flavor pop add some fresh green mint and feta cheese. So delicious!

    That’s our dinner tonight, thank you! 🙂 My mother-in-law makes a similar dish — hummus, spiced lamb or beef, and toasted almonds or pine nuts for the topping. I think feta cheese will add an interesting flavor.

      Feta cheese would be great crumbled on top, great idea!

    I never would have thought of this recipe but I am glad someone did. How simple and not terribly unhealthy.
