With Cinco de Mayo around the corner, I thought it would be fun to put a Mexican-ish spin on one of my favorite appetizers :)
Let me introduce you to Black Bean Hummus… this could quite possibly be my favorite hummus yet! It is jam packed with INCREDIBLE flavor that will have you coming back for more. If making for a large crowd, you may want to triple this recipe. A single recipe will serve 2-3 people comfortably. I will definitely be making this recipe again and again!
- 1 (15 oz) can black beans, rinsed and drained
- 2 Tbsp. olive oil
- 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
- 1 Tbsp. white wine vinegar
- ½ tsp. salt
- ½ tsp. cumin
- ½ tsp. onion powder
- ¼ tsp. chili powder

- Combine black beans, olive oil, lemon juice, white wine vinegar, salt, cumin, onion powder, chili powder and minced garlic into a blender. Blend until smooth.
- Spread into a flat dish, creating grooves on the top with spoon.
- Let rest about 10 minutes then drizzle some olive oil into groves.
- Evenly distribute tortilla wedges onto a lightly greased cookie sheet. Lightly spray tops of tortilla wedges with cooking spray. Bake at 350 for about 7-10 minutes or until crispy and slightly golden in color.
