Hummus cannot be healthy in the amounts that I eat it.

Super simple and delcious. I ended up doubling the jalapenos since I like it hot. Used EVOO and was great. Next time will probably add more lime juice for tartness. Great money saver from the little packages I'm used to buying (8 oz/$3.89).

Ooooo! Yummy! One variation that I do is use raw Garbanzo beans that have been soaked for at least 24 hours. Yes they do get soft and the texture and flavor is pretty much the same. Less expensive and more nutritious.

So good! This is a staple in our household, even my 18 month old son loves it. We substitute mild pepperoncini for the Jalapenos so that he can enjoy it as well. There is no gluten in our household so we enjoy it with rice crackers and as a dipper for fresh cut veggies. The perfect snack!

So much better than store-bought! I used half of a fresh jalapeno and only had extra virgin olive oil, so had to use it. I thought it tasted good with the evoo, so can't wait to try it with the light tasting oil. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

I came across your recipe just as I was about to make a batch of hummus. The lime and jalapeno was a pleasant change from the lemon juice I usually use. A favorite variation of my family is substituting black beans for the garbanzos.
