Black bean hummus is a great substitute for traditional hummus with an added kick. It’s dippable, spreadable, and super easy to make! And instead of adding 6 or 7 different seasonings like you could in traditional hummus, you can use Spicy Dan-O’s to save some time while bringing great flavor. Seriously, Dan-O’s has half of the herbs and spices you’d find in any hummus recipe!
So there are a few ways you can go about this recipe. If you’re looking for more of a southwest kick, you can add in some diced jalapeno and about ¼ of cilantro. This time I went a little plain and skipped out on these ingredients. The result was still a creamy, garlicky, slightly spicy dip with a nice southwest taste and a little middle-eastern zing!
Also, one would traditionally make hummus in a food processor, but I did not have mine handy. I used a blender and it worked just fine! You could even make this black bean hummus by hand if you are skipping the jalapeno and cilantro, but we all like to save some time!
Serve with pita, pepper slices, or tortilla chips! Enjoy.
