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.
Most of you wanted more pumpkin, so here is another recipe. This one is savory and really good! It’s kind of a pumpkin version of hummus made with different ingredients.
This dip would be great with chips, crackers or veggies. Great for those holiday parties and a healthy alternative to traditional veggie dips. No added fats in here at all. 🙂 The flavors are very similar to those in my Smokey Roasted Chickpeas. It comes together in just minutes. If you enjoy savory pumpkin recipes, then you may also enjoy my Pumpkin Enchiladas.

Serve immediately or refrigerate for later. This should last a couple weeks in the fridge and can even be frozen. This recipe makes about 1 1/2 cups dip. Enjoy!
You can Save Money By Making Your Own Hummus!! Hummus is probably one of the easiest things you can make yourself. It takes only minutes to make.
Most store bought versions contain unwanted additives as well as GMOs. If you look at the ingredients in Sabra’s Classic Hummus, they are as follows:
Cooked Chickpeas (Chickpeas [Garbanzos], Water), Tahini (Ground Sesame), Soybean Oil, Garlic, Salt, Citric Acid, Potassium Sorbate Added to Maintain Freshness, Natural Flavors. Classic Hummus
Why is there soybean oil in hummus? Traditionally, it’s made with olive oil….and you certainly would not use natural flavors if you made it in your own kitchen. According to Wikipedia, Sabra is partly own by Pepsi. You know the soda people? They spent a lot of money lobbying against GMO labeling.
If you didn’t know, my mother in law is Turkish and this is her hummus recipe. It is really good! I have not tried freezing it, but I am sure you probably could. For more videos, you can subscribe to my You Tube Channel.
Save Money By Making Your Own Hummus
- 2 cups cooked or 1 can chickpeas drained and rinsed
- 1/4 cup tahini
- Juice of 1 lemon
- 1-2 tsp cumin (I used two)
- 3 cloves garlic or 2 tsp garlic powder (I use real garlic)
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 T olive oil
If it is too thick, just add a bit of water until you get the consistency you desire. That is it. Sometimes I drizzle a bit of oil over the top. Enjoy!
