Menu Monday: Black Bean & Cilantro Hummus #recipe

This past weekend I had the opportunity to sample a black bean hummus at one of our local farmers markets. It was delicious and I decided to try and reproduce it at home. I found a few recipes online & combined them into this. Mine has a lot more heat than the one I sampled but it's a pretty decent attempt.

Black Bean and Cilantro Hummus

1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro, plus more for garnish
2 tablespoons tahini
2 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 (15-ounce) can no-salt-added black beans, rinsed and drained
1 to 2 garlic cloves, peeled
1/2 to 1 small jalapeƱo pepper, seeded (I used one and left in the seeds - a bit too much)

Add all ingredients to a food processor and blend on high until smooth. Taste and adjust seasonings if needed.

Yes, it looks nasty but it's so yummy! Serve with chips, pitas, veggies, or add it to a burrito even!

Ever tried other beans in hummus? Any favorite flavor combinations?
