Black Bean Hummus

Hummus is a Middle Eastern dip, spread, or savory dish traditionally made from cooked, mashed chickpeas blended with tahini, lemon juice, and garlic. I’ve shared various versions of hummus before in all kinds of flavors. Today my twist is a spicy version based on black beans not chickpeas. Put all the ingredients in a blender or food processor and process until smooth. Taste your hummus and adjust spices as needed for your family. I’ve added jalapeño pepper, garlic, and lime juice for a pop of flavor.

    1. I hope you like it. If you find the black beans too strong, you can make hummus half black bean and half chick peas.

  1. So Happy I spotted this recipe for black bean hummus. I need to try it out ASAP. Make chickpea hummus all the time, but this will be a fantastic change of pace idea. Thanks for sharing Carol.

  2. I’ve never thought about making hummus with beans – such a great idea. I guess that kidney beans would work well too :o)


I love to make new friends and get to know you.
