For some hummus with some kick, try jalapeno hummus. If you're looking for heat, leave the seeds in, otherwise, remove them for a milder kick start to your next party or get-together. This pairs well on any of your favorite sandwiches, with pita chips or bread, and much more. Don't be afraid to experiment, you may just find this hummus to be your next guilty pleasure.


  • 1 (15 oz) can garbanzo beans/chickpeas (drained)
  • 1 jalapeno pepper (chopped, seeds removed)
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 2 tablespoons garlic
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

Steps to Make It

  1. In a blender or food processor, process beans, garlic, jalapeno pepper, and olive oil.

  2. Add lemon, tahini, and salt and blend well. Hummus should be smooth and creamy. If needed, add 1 teaspoon at a time until desired consistency.

  3. Place in a bowl and serve with veggies, pita bread, or pita chips at room temperature. Hummus may also be stored in the refrigerator, covered.
