I know this probably sounds like an ignorant question but can someone tell me the correct pronunciation for "hummus". I tried it for the first time today and I really liked it. I plan on telling some friends of mine about it so they can try it too but I don't want to sound stupid trying to tell them what it is. Thanks in advance.

I go with the 1st pronunciation

and I love the stuff. Used to turn me off a few years ago but now I can eat it with a spoon- especially love the Trader Joe varieties!
