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.

I am not a fan of Hummus but my girls love it. Great recipe.
I love making hummus! This sounds like an interesting variation. Thanks for the recipe.
I would not have thought of using black beans, but I’m really tempted to try it. I have all the ingredients to hand too! I love hummus, #mmbc
I hope you like it. If you find the black beans too strong, you can make hummus half black bean and half chick peas.
Interesting. I wonder how different this is to chickpea hummus.
it taste like black beans with spices
I love all of the hummus recipes. You are such a good and healthy eater. Thank you for sharing at #aclwcc.

…this is something that I could never get into.
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.
Let me know what you think!
Creating a hummus using black beans was brilliant… and I loved your idea to add some jalapeño pepper! This is such a fun way to bring something new to the dinner table!
thanks so much for the encouragement Heidi!
Gracias por la receta. Te mando un beso.
Sounds a delicious flavour hummus x #mmbc
I’ve never thought about making hummus with beans – such a great idea. I guess that kidney beans would work well too :o)
I’ve made them with white beans but haven’t tried kidney beans.
