    I have a cookbook that says you can use unsweetened peanut butter in place of the tahini. I haven't tried it though.

    Exactly !! Add and taste, adjust for seasoning and taste again. You want your hummus to kinda kick you in the mouth (if you will) and thick enough to cling to your vegetable sticks or pita when dipped. Lime juice and tobasco sauce are real helpers.

    If you have a food processor and sesame seeds you can make your own tahini.

    Toast about a cup of seeds in a skillet over medium heat. When they start smelling good their done, be careful because they can burn easily. Let cool. Put in a food processor and add a 1-2 Tablespoons of oil (preferably sesame oil) and process until it turns into nut butter. If it is still a little dry, add more oil. Now you have tahini.
