Jalapeño Lime Hummus

Jalapeño Lime Hummus: Savory Sweet and Satisfying

 I enjoy making homemade hummus. It is so easy to do and I can play around with many different flavors. And the fact that it is so much cheaper than buying it in a store makes it even better.

Jalapeño Lime Hummus: Savory Sweet and Satisfying

My latest hummus creation has a subtle lime flavor and a nice spicy kick. If you want less of a spicy kick reduce the amount of jalapeños and/or red pepper flakes.

Jalapeño Lime Hummus
4 tablespoons tahini
2/3 cup lime juice
6 cloves fresh garlic
4 heaping tablespoons pickled jalapeños
2 tablespoons dried cilantro
1/4 teaspoons red pepper flakes
2- 16 ounce can garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
4-6 tablespoons olive oil

In a food processor add in the tahini and lime juice, pulse just until combined. Add in the garlic, jalapeños, cilantro and red pepper flakes. Pulse until well mixed. Add in a handful of garbanzo beans and turn on the food processor. With the food processor running slowly add in the remaining garbanzo beans and then slowly add the olive oil in by the tablespoon until desired consistency is reached. Transfer hummus to a container with lid and refrigerate overnight.
