Jalapeno-Cilantro Hummus…Yum Yum

 There is a serious food “addiction” taking place at our house!

 Everyday we find ourselves (Me, GB and anyone else who stops by for a visit)  eating Jalapeno-Cilantro Hummus. It’s so good that we can’t stop. Anything we’ve eaten it on…pita bread, corn chips {it’s like eating guacamole}, cucumber slices, french bread…is delicious. I admit that until now we’ve cheated and purchased it at our local Costco. But from now on I’m going be using this recipe to make it from scratch. It’s quicker and more cost effective than running to the store to buy it.


Jalapeno-Cilantro Hummus


2 cloves garlic
2 (15 ounce) cans garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
3 tablespoons lime juice
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup olive oil
3/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and minced



Place garlic in a food processor and process until minced, about 10 seconds. Add beans, lime juice and salt. Process into a puree. With the processor running, slowly add olive oil in a steady stream through the feed tube. Process until mixture thickens, about 1-2 minutes. Add cilantro and jalapeno and pulse throughout, about 10 seconds. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Bring to room temperature before serving.

Preparation Time-30 minutes

Makes 2 cups (I’d double the recipe if I were you!)

 P.S. Here’s an idea we haven’t tried. Putting it on a sandwich. Yum! Yum!

    Brianna - I just picked up the Jalapeno-Cilantro hummus at Costco yesterday, and it was pure bliss! So creamy and moist, not like so many other hummus companies offer. Once we’re finished with that (and I’m sure it won’t take long!) I will make it from your recipe. :)

    camberley - Hi Brianna-

    Thanks for leaving a comment! We heart comments!

    Mmmmmm. I love Costco’s hummus. I could eat the whole carton by myself.

    sherri - The jalapeno-cilantro hummus is the perfect recipe for me to give someone who already has all he wants for Christmas. He wouldn’t dare turn down my cooking, yet he also wouldn’t dare take a gift from me (he prefers to do the giving)-yet this recipe has two of his fav’ things : humus and jalapenos! So now all I have to do is find some fancy containers to this great gift idea! maybe with those doily cloth decorations that cover the lid!! Can’t wait to make this this! Thank you!
