Jalapeno Black Bean Hummus

Hummus2Tonight is taco night (2nd this week) for Seth and me! I decided to jazz things up a bit by adding a side dish and a twist on one of our favorites, hummus. Now there is something about this dang dip that makes me want to stand guard of the bowl with a plate of warm pita chips and a snarl mean enough to ward off any others from my blended beans. Other people see this as weird, so I refrain in their favor.


But, oh, do they get dangerously close to unleashing my hangry (hungry+angry) side.


1 15 oz. can black beans, drained
3 tablespoons chopped jalapenos
1/4 cup tahini
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
pinch of salt
pinch of ground pepper
cilantro (optional)



Blend drained black beans in a food processor until smooth. Mix in other ingredients and blend again. Taste and add more jalapenos to your liking. Enjoy!

And please let me know of any suggestions you may have!

Keep close,
