A Mediterranean spicy kick!
Hummus and chili peppers, like jalapeños, go very well together. It’s the combo of beans and lime juice – the earthy and tart – that go so well with the spice. Best of all, creating a delicious spicy dip, like this cilantro jalapeño hummus, takes no time at all in the kitchen. It’s just a few minutes of chopping and a few more of processing, and you have the perfect spicy spread. For extra spice, try upgrading your chili to the serrano pepper.
Cilantro Jalapeño Hummus
- Using a food processor, combine the chickpeas, lime juice, garlic, and salt. Process until the mix is smooth or near the consistency you prefer for hummus.
- Add to the mix the yogurt, olive oil, and tahini. Process again until all ingredients are thoroughly mixed.
- Add the chopped jalapeño pepper and cilantro. Pulse the processor 10 to 15 times to mix.
For less spiciness, only use 1/2 of a jalapeño pepper.
