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 🙂 Let’s all give him “I told you so!” all at once! Ha.
I was inspired to make the jalapeño 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:
Jalapeños Cilantro Hummus
· 2 16oz cans of Garbanzo beans (rinsed)
· 1 Cup chopped Cilantro
· 3 cloves minced garlic
· 1/2 Cup Olive Oil
· 2 tsp Cumin
· 3 diced jalapeños (no seeds)
· 3 Tbs lemon juice
salt and pepper to taste
That was so easy, right?! We like spicy so three jalapeños were great for us, but adjust accordingly.
For the kids I made a non spicy
Roasted Red Pepper Hummus
· 2 cans garbanzo beans
3 cloves minced garlic
· 1/2 C Olive oil
· 1 Tbs Seseme oil
· 1/2 C red onion
· 1 can roasted red peppers (tip: my dollar store carries jars for $1)
· 2 Tbs lemon juice
· 2 tsp Paprika
· Salt & Pepper to taste
Serve with your fav veggies or pita chips like us….Happy Snacking!! Perfect for summer 🙂
