My version of Cilantro Jalapeno Hummus is, of course, an incredibly tasty dip, but it also works fabulously as a sandwich spread and as an alternative to salad dressing. It pairs perfectly with Food Should Taste Good sweet potato chips, multigrain tortilla chips, baby carrots, broccoli florets and any other cracker, chip or veggie you love dippin’!

If you’ve only had store-bought hummus and never made your own, you’re really missing out. To be completely honest, homemade hummus is waaaaaaay more flavorful than store-bought and you’re able to control the ingredients. You will need a food processor to make the magic happen… a blender would probably work just fine too.

Ingredients
  • 2-3 jalapenos seeded or unseeded depending on the amount of spice you like (I use 3 whole jalapenos and find that the hummus is spicy, but not too spicy)
  • 2-4 garlic cloves
  • a generous handful of cilantro about 1 cup
  • 1 15 oz can no-sodium chickpeas (garbanzo beans), drained and rinsed
  • 1/4 cup about 1 lemon fresh lemon juice
  • 3 tbsp tahini
  • 1/2-1 tsp salt
Instructions
  1. Add all ingredients to the bowl of food processor. Process until very smooth, about 1 minute- enjoy.
  2. Store in a tightly sealed container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
Recipe Notes

The amount of jalapenos will depend on how spicy you want your hummus. I like mine with a little kick, so I use 3-4 jalapenos with seeds and ribs. 😉
