Roasted Jalapeno Hummus

I have mentioned this several times before, but my husband loves spicy food.  He is the creator behind my Homemade Sriracha Sauce and my Homemade Salsa.   I am not a fan of spicy food at all.  This roasted jalapeno hummus recipe is all his creation and it really does have a kick!  Very simple to make as well. Roasting the jalapenos adds a deeper level of flavor.

A healthy snack with a kick!


  • 2 cups cooked or 1 15oz can chickpeas drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 - 1 whole jalapeno (depending on how spicy you like it)
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • Juice of medium 2 lemons
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 T olive oil
  • 3 T water


  1. Preheat oven to 400.
  2. Roast the jalapino whole for 10 minutes, stopping halfway through to flip it.
  3. Slice it once it's finished cooking. You also may want to let it cool a bit.
  4. Add everything to the food processor and blend until smooth. If the mixture seems too thick for you, you can always add a little extra water or olive oil until you reach a desired consistency.


Recipe Notes

If you like things extra spicy, you can leave the seeds on the jalapeno. If you don't like as much of a kick, you can remove the seeds from the jalapeno. This hummus should last a couple weeks in the fridge. Enjoy!

  1. I adore your website! Thanks for beautiful healthy recipes... from a classic chef who walks the walk: talks the talk: preparing, endlessly searching for delish. food dishes, anything I can get my hands on, that are a way healthier choice! I truly have, for a long time now made my goal in life to educate myself and pass on what I've learned to others... It's shocking to see how many posts there are out there with no clue what so ever re: health! I don't believe in that Hollywood crap that everyone should be stick thin...just HEALTHY! I'm also into natural/organic skin products, I mean, HELLO, they've done the GMO's & that's just what we know about...sorry didn't mean to go there, yes I did, thnx Andrea
  2. I followed this recipe to the letter, and the result was good, but WAY too lemony. Not sure if my lemons were bigger or maybe extra juicy or if the lemon combined with the jalapeno somehow made it all seem super acidic or what. Sooo ... I ended up doubling everything else. So basically it was a double batch with the juice of 2 lemons, and one whole roasted jalapeno, no seeds. It turned out very nice & I got compliments at the potluck where I took it. I will make this again, thanks!
