Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Roast Red Pepper (I broil mine in the oven for about 20 minutes) and then seal in a large gallon sized zipper bag for an additional 15 minutes. Remove skin & seeds.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix together black pepper, cayenne pepper, cumin, oregano and red pepper flakes.
  3. Blend garbanzo beans, olive oil, tahini, jalapenos, garlic and all liquids in a food processor or high powered blender.
  4. Add remaining ingredients, including the roasted red pepper and bowl of dry seasonings.
  5. Blend until smooth and desired consistency.
  6. Cover and refrigerate overnight to allow the flavors to meld.
  7. Stir well before serving.
  8. Serve with sliced red bell peppers, cauliflower, cucumbers, crackers and/or pita chips! Enjoy!

Delicious! I blended it using a hand held immersion blender. Better than store bought.

This is the best hummus I have had. The flavor of the roast red pepper gives a great flavor to the hummus right away. The longer you refrigerate it the better it gets as well. I make this recipe the day my previous batch runs out so I can enjoy this every day. Thanks for posting.
