Jalapeño Cilantro Hummus

Snacking. We do a lot of it and it often consists of pitas and hummus.  We usually buy our hummus from the farmers market and even there, it can add up.  Especially when we eat it like its going out of style! I decided to start making our own recently and I don’t think we’re going to  have to be buying it as often. Super easy, really good, customizable and more affordable!  We always buy a spicy hummus and so we decided to make a spicy one.  We had some left over canned jalapeños we had to use and some cilantro. If you prefer plain hummus, just don’t add in the jalapeños and cilantro. I looked at various other recipes and by adding of my own jazz, this is what I came up with.  It will make roughy three cups!

You will need:

1 can of garbanzo beans

3-4 jalapeños with some of the juice reserved (make sure to use the canned jalapeños; they are saturated with juice making them blend in smoother than fresh/raw ones).

1 cup fresh cilantro

4 tablespoons of Tahini

4 cloves of garlic, minced

2 tablespoons lemon juice

1/2 tsp ground cumin

1/4-1/2 tsp curry powder

pinch of salt

pinch of crushed red pepper flakes

2-3 tablespoons olive oil

Place all ingredients in the blender or food processor and process until smooth.  You may need to add more or less olive oil to help blend everything.  Chill for one hour before serving.
