Trader Joe's Cilantro Jalapeno Hummus doesn't have anything on the deliciousness of this easy-to-make, very healthy hummus!
  • 2-3 jalapeños, seeded or unseeded depending on the amount of spice you like (I use 3 jalapeños that have most seeds removed and find that the hummus just has a little kick, it's not overly spicy.)
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • a generous handful of fresh cilantro leaves (about 1 cup)
  • 1 (15 oz) can chickpeas (garbanzo beans), drained and rinsed RESERVE liquid
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice (about 1 lemon juiced)
  • 3 tablespoons tahini
  • 1/2-1 teaspoon salt + more to taste as needed
  • 1/4 cup reserved liquid from canned chickpeas (or use water)
  1. Add all ingredients to the bowl of food processor. Process until very smooth, about 2 minute. Taste and adjust seasoning. If hummus is too dry and/or chunky, add about 1/4 cup liquid from the canned chickpeas or add water. Process again. Transfer hummus to a serving bowl and enjoy.

  2. Store in a tightly sealed container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
