Jalapeño Hummus Dip


It’s the last day of the year so I wanted to share a quick recipe that literally takes minutes to make and is unbelievably good!

This delicious Jalapeño Hummus Dip is quick and easy and requires no tahini paste!

In fact, I had a craving for hummus the other night and I also wanted to test out my brand new Cuisinart Food Processor that I got for Christmas, so I just whipped this Jalapeño Hummus Dip up with the ingredients I had on hand and it worked out fabulously!

I basically ALWAYS have jalapeños, garlic, cilantro, limes, and green onions on hand. I’m seriously convinced that I should be of Latin descent…

This dip was great with pita chips, tortilla chips, and even fresh vegetables like carrots, cucumbers, and red peppers. I live on the wild side and threw two whole jalapeños in there (seeds and all), and it had quite a bit of kick to it. If you’re not looking for something to knock your socks off, then you can remove the seeds.
