People seem to either love hummus or hate it. Personally, I’m not a fan of plain hummus, but I LOVE the flavored ones. I make my own at home a lot. My favorite variation, up to now, has been my Roasted Garlic Hummus. A while back, I created this new flavor for a Cinco de Mayo cookout, and have made it several times since. It’s been a hit every time… even with my husband who doesn’t usually love hummus. It’s a totally different flavor variation from my Roasted Garlic Hummus, and just as good. I paired it with homemade, air-fried tortilla chips, but store-bought would be just as good. Let us know if you try it! ~Erin
1 (15 oz.) can chickpeas
2 T. chopped cilantro
1 medium clove garlic, pressed or minced
½ a fresh jalapeno, seeded, veins removed, & finely chopped
Juice of 1 lime (about 2 Tablespoons)
½ tsp. salt
1 T. water
2 T. avocado oil
Tortilla chips or veggies, for serving
Drain, rinse and remove the skins from the chickpeas. Removing the skins will make finished hummus smooth and creamy. The best way to remove them is to pinch each one between your fingers, and they will pop right out.
Add all ingredients, except the water and avocado oil to a food processor; blend until smooth. Finally, add the olive oil and water (stream in while the food processor is running, if possible) and blend until smooth.
Serve with tortilla chips or veggies.
