Jalepeno Cilantro Hummus & Roasted Red Pepper Hummus Recipes

Hummus has been quite popular in our house lately, and I’m thrilled since my picky eaters aren’t into eating veggies unless it’s dipped in something. I feel like this might be healthier than ranch.
I decided to make my own hummus instead of buying it because it goes fast, can be pricey at the store, and to prove to my dear hubby that the giant Cuisinart food processor was not a bad purchase 馃檪 Let’s all give him “I told you so!” all at once! Ha.
I was inspired to make the jalape帽o cilantro hummus from the one at Costco. It is heaven, and kind of tastes like guacamole…YUM.

Here are the ingredients I used in mine:
Jalape帽os Cilantro Hummus
路 2 16oz cans of Garbanzo beans (rinsed)
路 1 Cup chopped Cilantro
路 3 cloves minced garlic
路 1/2 Cup Olive Oil
路 2 tsp Cumin
路 3 diced jalape帽os (no seeds)
路 3 Tbs lemon juice
salt and pepper to taste

I minced the garlic first, then added the garbanzo beans and let it go for about 30 sec, while slowly adding the olive oil and lemon.

Throw in the jalape帽os, and cilantro, and finally the cumin, salt & pepper.

That was so easy, right?! We like spicy so three jalape帽os were great for us, but adjust accordingly.

For the kids I made a non spicy
Roasted Red Pepper Hummus
路 2 cans garbanzo beans
3 cloves minced garlic
路 1/2 C Olive oil
路 1 Tbs Seseme oil
路 1/2 C red onion
路 1 can roasted red peppers (tip: my dollar store carries jars for $1)
路 2 Tbs lemon juice
路 2 tsp Paprika
路 Salt & Pepper to taste

Serve with your fav veggies or pita chips like us….Happy Snacking!! Perfect for summer 馃檪

Speaking of summer, hope everyone is having a good one! I am trying to keep these kids busy with swim lessons and indoor activities! It’s H-O-T.

My good news this week is that I am attending Blogher 2011 in San Diego in a couple weeks!!!!
