Spiced Easy Ground Beef Recipe with Hummus from www.inspiredtaste.net #recipe

Here’s a simple and perfectly satisfying hummus recipe for you. It’s an easy recipe, too. We make our spiced and easy ground beef recipe with smoky cumin, cinnamon, coriander and spicy cayenne pepper. Then, we add the spiced beef to the top of  smooth creamy hummus.

Spiced Up and Easy Ground Beef Recipe

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 briny feta cheese. So delicious!

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

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!
