Hummus is one of my favorite snacks to eat. I like to eat it with pita chips, pretzels, vegetables, etc. It makes a great, hardy snack that is filling, especially when loaded up with vegetables. I also enjoy hummus as a spread on wraps. It’s also a great replacement to dressings and sauces. Hummus has always been one of those items that I bought at the store. Store bought can be good, but once I started making my own at home I realized how much better it tastes.

Traditionally, hummus is made with chickpeas as the base, which is why it’s usually lighter in color. For this recipe, I decided to give it a go using black beans since that it what I have on hand more often. Black beans can still be blended down into a smooth consistency, the same as chickpeas. Another ingredient that is traditional in hummus is tahini, which is a sesame paste. I omit that from my recipe as well and I don’t think it’s noticeable.

 

I use some of my favorite flavors here with cilantro, lime and jalapeño. Typically, I prefer my hummus to be on the spicier side. However, the heat can be controlled by adding as little or as much of the jalapeño and the seeds. I added the whole pepper to mine and loved it. This recipe comes together quickly because all the ingredients get thrown into a food processor or blender and blended until smooth.
