Vegan Jalapeno and Lime Hummus

Raw-Vegan-Jalapeno-and-Lime-Hummus All I had to see in this recipe title was the words “jalapeno” and “hummus” and I knew I would be making it.

To me, it’s like the peanut butter and chocolate combination.  Jalapeno and hummus…same thing.

It just can’t get any easier than this, you just put everything in your food processor and it’s ready within minutes.

I’ve made it several times and I’ve used both lime and lemon and both were good.

While the recipe called for peanut butter, I used tahini and I also used fresh jalapenos.

So if you want a little change to regular hummus, this would be great to try and you probably already have all the ingredients on hand!

Tip #1:  If you aren’t in a hurry to make this and want to be super-healthy, you can sprout your chickpeas instead of using the canned version.  I made a Raw Sprouted Chickpea Hummus recipe and it’s really good too, you just have to make sure you take into account the extra time to sprout the chickpeas.

Tip #2:  If you’re not feeling the jalapeno and lime combination, I also have a Vegan Sun-Dried Tomato Hummus recipe that is really good too!
