How long is an opened container of hummus good? Would that be the same for homemade hummus?

I've eaten 3+ week old hummus, and it tastes just as good! Hummus may dry out a little if uncovered, or develop spots of mold, but these are superficial nuisances. Once removed, you can still enjoy the rest of the container. You'll know the hummus has gone bad if it tastes sour.

Personally, I'm OK eating hummus that's more than a week old (when I buy it I usually get it from Trader Joe's). The texture might suffer a little but it's still OK to eat.

I'd say about a week. Factory stuff maybe a bit shorter as you don't know how long it's been sitting there---those should have a 'best by' date.
