The "SECRET, SUPER EASY" Jalapeno-Cilantro Hummus

If you have ever been to the Pita Jungle restaurant, you may have had their Jalapeno Cilantro Hummus.  It. Is. AMAZING!  My hubby doesn't like hummus and he LOVES this!  Even the kids like it!  Part of what makes it so good is that it is smooth, not gritty like others can be. Well.....this is my recipe, and it comes pretty dang close!  Wanna know how I can tell?  The family eats it!! No complaints!

Use it for pitas, crackers, sandwiches (in place of mayo,) a veggie dip, or, dip your popcorn into it (don't knock it till you try it!) It is also AMAZING on nachos or fajitas and a great low fat option to sour cream or guacamole.

This recipe has been fairly close guarded.....until now!


1/2 Jalapeno (seeded, unless you want some real spice!)
Juice of 1 Lime
2 Garlic Cloves
1 can Garbanzo Beans (Rinsed)
1/4 C Water or vegetable stock  (more if too thick)

Combine all ingredients into blender.

Blend on Low until it gets going...
Turn to high..and blend for a full minute!  You want it very smooth!
Pour into a container and enjoy! If it is too thin, it MAY firm up in the fridge, but watch the water next time.
