Cilantro Jalapeno Hummus

I love hummus and when I made this a few nights ago I was just in heaven. Hummus is 100 times better when you make it yourself. From time to time I get the store bought hummus and that is what inspired this recipe. I was at Trader Joe's and picked up their Cilantro Jalapeno Hummus. I enjoyed it so much that I had to make some myself...So this is what I came up with.


2 cups unpacked cilantro
2 large jalapenos seeded and roughly chopped
1 1/2 cups chickpeas
2-3 tablespoons tahini
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 cloves chopped garlic
1-2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon sea salt

In a food processor toss in your cilantro and jalapeno and mix until it is well combined and looks minced
Add the chickpeas and mix some more.
Add all the other ingredients and mix until smooth. Adjust flavors to taste. If too thick you can add a tablespoon or two of water.

We decided to use this on some wraps for dinner. They came out really well. I just grilled up some of the morning star chickn' starters, some baby bella mushrooms, and some orange bell pepper. I spread the hummus on the wrap and added some romaine lettuce and then the chickn' n veggies and topped with a little daiya cheese.

  1. This looks so tasty -- something I'd want to dip carrots and cucumbers in, but would also probably eat straight up!
