Put a Southwestern spin on hummus by swapping black beans for the chickpeas and triangle-shaped bell pepper slices for the pita chips. To entice kids to try new foods, offer tasting samples while students are lining up for lunch. It’s a fun way to expose kids to unique ingredients they may never have tried. This is one of our favorite dishes to share with them, and we also especially love it because it matches our company colors (black and green).
