Roasted Jalapeno Hummus

Prep Time 15 min Serves 1 1/2 cups hummus     adjust servings

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!
