Spicy Black Beans Hummus

My food choices have been a lot less than ideal lately, and it’s now time to turn that around! I have been enjoying A LOT of sweets and other baked goods, and now my body is screaming for a reset. I decided to whip up some of this Spicy Black Bean Hummus because it is light, low carb, FULL of flavor and spice and it is so delicious with a lot of different things.

Here are some tips for making my Spicy Black Bean Hummus:

  • Use as many jalapeños as you would like to achieve your desired heat level. We like things really spicy, so I typically use three jalapeños. I also leave the seeds and membrane in my jalapeños for an extra kick of heat. Feel free to leave these out if you would like it even milder.
  • Go ahead and double or even triple this recipe if you are planning to serve a crowd. This will stay fresh in the refrigerator for up to a week, so don’t worry about making too much!
  • I recommend a food processor for this recipe, but I have also made this hummus along with many other things in my blender. Whatever you have on hand should work.

These are the ingredients that you will need for this easy, spicy dip:

  • Cilantro
  • Tahini (sesame seed paste)
  • Limes
  • Olive oil
  • Cumin
  • Salt
  • Black beans
  • Garlic
  • Jalapeños
