Fancy Frugal Life: Jalepeno Cilantro Hummus & Roasted Red Pepper Hummus Recipes

Jalepeno Cilantro Hummus & Roasted Red Pepper Hummus Recipes

Hummus has been quite popular in our house lately, and I'm thrilled since my picky eaters aren't into eating veggies unless it's dipped in something. I feel like this might be healthier than ranch.
I decided to make my own hummus instead of buying it because it goes fast, can be pricey at the store, and to prove to my dear hubby that the giant Cuisinart food processor was not a bad purchase :) Let's all give him "I told you so!" all at once! Ha.
I was inspired to make the jalapeño cilantro hummus from the one at Costco. It is heaven, and kind of tastes like guacamole...YUM.

Here are the ingredients I used in mine:
Jalapeños Cilantro Hummus
· 2 16oz cans of Garbanzo beans (rinsed)
· 1 Cup chopped Cilantro
· 3 cloves minced garlic
· 1/2 Cup Olive Oil
· 2 tsp Cumin
· 3 diced jalapeños (no seeds)
· 3 Tbs lemon juice
salt and pepper to taste

I minced the garlic first, then added the garbanzo beans and let it go for about 30 sec, while slowly adding the olive oil and lemon.

Throw in the jalapeños, and cilantro, and finally the cumin, salt & pepper.

That was so easy, right?! We like spicy so three jalapeños were great for us, but adjust accordingly.

For the kids I made a non spicy
Roasted Red Pepper Hummus
· 2 cans garbanzo beans
3 cloves minced garlic
· 1/2 C Olive oil
· 1 Tbs Seseme oil
· 1/2 C red onion
· 1 can roasted red peppers (tip: my dollar store carries jars for $1)
· 2 Tbs lemon juice
· 2 tsp Paprika
· Salt & Pepper to taste

Serve with your fav veggies or pita chips like us....Happy Snacking!! Perfect for summer :)

Speaking of summer, hope everyone is having a good one! I am trying to keep these kids busy with swim lessons and indoor activities! It's H-O-T.

My good news this week is that I am attending Blogher 2011 in San Diego in a couple weeks!!!!

I’ll be Wearing Cute Shoes to BlogHer '11!

This will be my first blog conference. Are any of you attending? I only know one person who is going...gotta channel my inner networking self! Ha

I'm very excited to learn more about this industry and be inspired,....oh and to also cool off in SD with some mommy alone time!

Great recipes! We're big hummus eaters as well. I always take some to family gatherings and it's gone in a heartbeat.

I had an amazing Jalapeno Cilantro hummus from Whole Foods last year and had forgotten about it. I've recently made my first batch of hummus. Thank you for the reminder of that delicious flavor combo. I am definitely giving your recipe a try. Congrats on attending your blogger conference! That would be fun to do someday. Have a great weekend!
