Cilantro Jalapeno Hummus

I tried this stuff at Whole Foods Market where they served it with fried pita chips, and it’s awesome! I don’t even really like hummus, but this stuff is delish! They also have a roasted red pepper hummus that is great! I’ll have to find that recipe and post too! Lala could not find this one at her Whole Foods, so I found a recipe. I have no idea why it has no tahini (sesame paste), since most hummus’s do, but this is the second/third recipe I have seen without it, so it must be right. ENJOY!

Cilantro Jalapeno Hummus

2 cloves garlic
2 15-oz cans garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
3 tbsp lime juice
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup olive oil
3/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and minced

Place garlic in food processor and process until minced. Add beans, lime juice, and salt. Puree. Slowly add the olive oil in a steady stream. Process until the mixture thickens (1-2 minutes). Add cilantro and jalapeno and pulse for 10 seconds. Serve on breads, tortillas, or pita bread.
