Black Bean Hummus

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!

    Hummus is not hummus if it doesn't have the tahini; what you've created is a version of a black bean dip.

    1. Ang

      Did you try a different vinegar? I'm wondering the same thing...

    I made this for our family wedding reception and it was the star appetizer!! I had to share the recipe with several people and it is now a staple in our home. Delicious and healthy!!

    Super tasty! I had to substitute lime for the lemon and omit the white wine vinegar (didn't have any), and it came out very well :)

    A nice hummus with a bit of a more tart flavor rather than spicy.

    Hate chick peas. This was delicious. Added a couple tablespoons of pickled jalapeños into he blender with everything.
