Jalapeno Hummus

Need a tasty, healthy treat for summer time? Here you are my friend…! Although, if your not into spice this might not be the snack for you.


Here is what you need for one batch. I usually make at least 2 batches at time. Obviously, you can adjust to the spice to your liking.

jalapeno hummus ingredients
  • 1 can of garbanzo beans (drained)
  • 1/4 cup of Tahini
  • 2 T of lemon juice
  • 1/2 of a can of diced jalapenos (We like it spicy)
  • 1 clove of garlic (Andy is a garlic baby so I only use a tiny bit)
  • 1 T of red pepper flakes
  • 2 t of cumin
  • salt to taste
  1. Drain garbanzo beans add to your food processor
  2. Add tahini, garlic, cumin, jalapenos, red pepper flakes, and lemon juice
  3. Turn on that food processor!
  4. Taste it, add salt, red pepper flakes until your happy.

Dump all the ingredients in the food processor…

Turn that sucker on… taste test. Add more salt, garlic, or red pepper flakes.

Eat it up. We eat it with carrots and/ or pita chips. Any veggie or chip works in my book!

On a side note: Do you find taking pictures of food super tricky? Me too. You have no idea how many pictures I have of this ol’ batch of hummus, and while I’m still not 100% happy with the above pic, I did try my very best :) Do you have any photo food taking tips? I asked C.R.A.F.T. facebook readers and they gave me some good hints…

The patterned fabric was a big help I think. Thank you, Tawnya.

And not using the carrots because they are too bright. Thank you, Aunt B.
Thank you, everyone, for reading C.R.A.F.T. and helping me with all of my issues on C.R.A.F.T. facebook : ) Anyone else have a handy food photographing tip? Or amazing hummus recipe?


  1. Ree Durmmond at Pioneer Woman.com has some good hints on taking photos of food. She does have two cookbooks out that she took the photos for. I bet she’d love to have you post this recipe on her site.

    Looks amazing btw.
