This white bean jalapeño hummus is the perfect cultural crossover, combining Middle Eastern and Mexican flavors for a delicious dip. The addition of pickled jalapeños, lime juice, and cilantro add a south-of-the-border flare to traditional hummus.
Canned white beans blend into a smooth dip with spicy, briny pieces of jalapeños delighting the senses. This entire recipe can be made in your food processor and it pairs just as well with chicken tacos or fajitas as it does with middle eastern dishes.
My husband, Kenny, and I (another union between Mexican and Middle Eastern flavors) enjoy this dip during the week with roasted carrots, whole wheat pita bread, and fried eggs. It makes the perfect work from home lunch in between zoom meetings and the flavors become even more developed when you give the hummus a chance to rest in the refrigerator.
This recipe is easy to batch up so you can keep a sealed container in the fridge when cravings strike. Kenny is obsessed with crunchy textures and loves to dip Persian cucumber spears and Akmak crackers into vats of this hummus! The beans and sesame seeds boost protein and fiber making it a delicious, healthy snack for you and your loved ones.
