I whipped up this delicious garlic jalapeno hummus yesterday, and it's one of the best batches of hummus I've made! It's creamy and spicy and extra bonus, oil free. I'm not against oil, but I feel like it's sometimes used when it doesn't need to be. Tahini adds enough fattiness to hummus so oil feels like overkill. I used these pickled, tamed jalapenos I found awhile ago on sale at Natural Grocers. They're really tasty, and not too spicy.
It feels silly to post a hummus recipe since it's so easy to make, but this was really delicious and I actually wrote down the ingredients so here goes.
Garlic Jalapeno Hummus
4 cloves roasted garlic
1 clove raw garlic
2 T. tahini
2 T. pickled jalapeno(plus more for garnish)
1 can garbanzo beans or two cups cooked garbanzo beans
Salt and Pepper to taste
Add all ingredients to a food processor and whiz away until nice and smooth and creamy. I used maybe two tablespoons of water to help it along. Top the hummus with a spoonful of pickled jalapenos and get to dipping!
