SPICY HUMMUS RECIPE 

If you’re like me, you’ll likely have most of the hummus ingredients on hand, except maybe for the fresh cilantro.  

  • Canned chickpeas (same as canned garbanzo beans)
  • Mild Ortega chilies (canned) 
  • Tahini
  • Garlic
  • Cilantro
  • Lime juice
  • Cumin powder
  • Extra-virgin olive oil

HOW DO YOU MAKE HUMMUS 

This simple hummus recipe comes together in about 20 minutes minutes.   Peeled chickpeas will give you a creamier textured hummus, but peeling the chickpeas can add about 7-10 minutes of prep time.  I try to remove some of the skin by simply placing the chickpeas in a colander and tossing them with my hand while water runs over them.  

  1. Add the garbanzo beans, chilies, tahini, garlic, cilantro, lime juice and cumin powder to a food processor.
  2. While the machine is running, slowly pour in the olive oil until creamy.
  3. Add a teaspoon or two of liquid (liquid from canned chickpeas or water) if you want a creamier texture.

WHAT TO SERVE WITH HUMMUS

  • Pita bread
  • Tortilla chips
  • Vegetable sticks (carrot, celery,  jicama, cucumber)
  • Cherry tomatoes
