Jalapeño Cilantro Hummus

You know you have officially become a southwestern eater when you put salsa or cilantro on everything. Seriously. Avocados, tortilla chips, jalapeños, and cilantro are shopping list staples around here.

Not surprisingly, I went out to eat the other night and fell in love with the most delicious hummus ever. It was smooth and spicy (and green!), and I ate way too much of it. So, I had to try to make some at home.

I don’t cook with oils, so the texture is a little different from traditional hummus, but the taste is awesome!

Jalapeño Cilantro Hummus

1.5 cups cooked garbonzo beans

3 cloves garlic

1 bunch cilantro

1 jalapeño, chopped and seeded

Juice of one lime

Salt

Water

Solar cook the garbonzo beans and let them cook. In the food processor, process the garlic and jalapeño until finely cut. Add the cilantro and repeat. Then add in the beans and lemon juice. Slowly process while adding in water until you get the right consistency. It will be a bit more grainy then traditional hummus. Enjoy!

Rating: yummy! I love it with fresh veggies, but if you eat gluten, it would be food with pita too!IMG_20140810_115546346
