For some hummus with some kick, try jalapeno hummus! If you're looking for heat, leave the seeds in, otherwise, remove them for a milder kick start to your next party or get-together.

What You'll Need

  • 1 can garbanzo beans/chickpeas (15 oz), drained
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, chopped, seeds removed
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 2 tablespoons garlic
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

How to Make It

  1. In a blender or food processor, process beans, garlic, jalapeno pepper, and olive oil.
  2. Add lemon, tahini, and salt and blend well. Hummus should be smooth and creamy. If needed, add 1 teaspoon at a time until desired consistency.
  3. Place in bowl and serve with veggies, pita bread, or pita chips at room temperature. Hummus may also be stored in the refrigerator, covered.
