Jalapeno Cilantro Hummus
Yum! Hummus. It is one of those guilt-free snack foods that tastes amazing and somehow sneaks in healthy proteins, vitamins, and nutrients. This Jalapeno Cilantro Hummus Recipe takes about 5 minutes to make and it is so much better than store bought hummus!
If you are looking for a good food processor, I recommend the Cuisinart DFP-14BCNY 14-Cup Food Processor, Brushed Stainless Steel. I researched and researched for the best food processor after hating my last three processors. This one is PERFECT! It processes the food perfectly. It is powerful, sturdy, and well built. The blades meet the edges so little tiny pieces of food do not get stuck or missed. And it has a large food feed tube. It is one of my favorite appliances in the kitchen.
This Jalapeno Cilantro Hummus is packed with power ingredients that does your body good. The garbanzo beans are a high source of protein and fiber. One cup of garbanzo beans have 15 grams of protein and 12.5 grams of fiber! Cilantro is a great source for antioxidants. It is also known for its detoxification properties that are very helpful for cleansing out toxic minerals in your body. It is also known to lower cholesterol and blood sugar levels. Jalapeños and limes are a rich source for Vitamin C and other antioxidants. When you whip this tasty dip together, you can feel good about doing it. So go ahead and make this hummus, take a big bite, and share the love. You are going to love it. And when you do, I told you so!
no tahini hummus recipe
I don’t use tahini in this hummus recipe. I only like tahini in some hummus flavors. In this recipe, it would overpower the flavors. This is perfect for those who do not like tahini or who want to save a little extra calories in their snacking. It is very delicious either way!
*Cooking Note: homemade Hummus is great for dipping, but it is also fabulous as a substitute sandwich spread! Try using it in place of mayo or ranch and see how you like it.
