This is very similar to hummus that I get at a local health food store, but better because I can make it at home and control what ingredients go in it! LOVE IT! Thanks for posting!

I'm a big fan of hummus and happy to have this spicy version to add to my collection of hummus recipes. I did have to use dried cilantro, but it came out fine. Also used chickpeas (garbanzo beans) but imagine that didn't change the flavor much from the navy beans.
