Jalapeno Black Bean Hummus

A fantastic mash-up of one of my favourite snacks and one of my favourite types of food.


  • 1 can black beans drained
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 3 tbsp tahini
  • 1 red pepper roasted
  • 1 lime juiced
  • 1 jalapeno seeds removed
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Add all ingredients to a blender or food processor, scraping down the sides to ensure everything gets well combined. Blend longer for a smoother hummus, shorter if you prefer a chunkier version.
  • Serve topped with your favourite taco toppings. I used more jalapeno slices, some salsa, and a sprinkling of cumin. Avocado, red onion, and cilantro would also be delicious.


  • For convenience, I used a jarred roasted red pepper and jarred jalapeno slices.
  • For more heat, you could add a squirt of sriracha or more jalapeno.
