I like to give credit where credit is due. This morning while frequenting our local Alemany Farmer’s market, we tried The Hummus Guy’s Habanero Lime hummus and I liked the spicy kick so did a twist on this complementary combo by making it a trio of hot peppers with lime. Last weekend while in Paso Robles, we saw a large sign on the side of the road for avocados, lemons and limes, and got the limes from a beautiful honor system stand off the road. The trio of peppers and garlic were generously gifted to us from our Airbnb host’s garden. The result is a hummus with a bright spicy kick and you can mellow this out or dial up the heat by adjusting the amount of peppers you add.
1. 1 can of garbanzo beans, fully drained (I get a case of organic beans at Costco at less than $0.80 per can)
2. 2 tablespoons of tahini (at least, you can add more if you like!)
3. 1/4 cup of regular or garlic olive oil
4. 1 garlic clove, diced
5. 1/2 jalapeno, habanero, and red pepper (not sure what varietal it was), chopped + keep some extra for garnish
6. 1/4 lime, squeezed into food processor
7. Salt to your preference
Directions: Put all in ingredients in food processor and process to your desired consistency, chunky or smooth. Once done, transfer to a bowl and top with some extra olive oil and pepper garnish. Serve with veggies, pita chips (The Hummus Guy’s Lemon chips are amazing), or whatever else you love hummus with.
