"This is the absolute best hummus I have ever had. It goes great with some toasted pita bread. Add more lemon juice if this hummus tastes like it needs a little extra kick."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

1 (15 ounce) can

This is the best recipe I've found on this site!!! I am orginally Syrian, so we are always making traditional hummus and when I decided to make this, my family was really skeptical. Everything changed when they tasted it and my mom single-handedly ate almost the whole recipe!!
(this tastes more flavorful if you double the amount of the spices)
Didn't care for this at all, maybe I'm not a hummus person, but it was so bland! It is far easier to whip up the onion soup mix/sour cream dip and just use fat free sour cream to be healthier.
I made this hummus with black beans at first and it turned out good. However, when I substituted black beans with garbanzo beans - it turned out even better! You will need to use more liquid with garbanzo beans, though.
Very good hummus, but very different from the classic garbanzo bean variety. My brother and I took this on our cross-country trip and ate some every day for 5 days straight and didn't get tired of it!
The key to getting that hummus taste out of the black bean is the tahini. If you don't use tahini, you may as well just have some refried beans from your local Mexican restaurant.
This is also an easy recipe to vary with other ingredients. Just remember that if you're going to add different spices, use fresh ones! There is no substitute!
Wonderful! Just as easy to make as standard hummus and probably even tastier. The liquid from canned beans gives me digestion difficulties so I rinsed the beans and added olive oil and water instead. I recommend a little oil to help pull the flavors together. Lovely with hot pita bread or cold vegetable sticks.
WOW!! This is great, and SO simple! For an extra kick, substitute 1 tablespoon of the lemon juice with lime juice. Fabulous!
I substituted peanut butter (yes, you read that right) for the tahini, because that's what I had in my cupboard, and it was so good my 5 children ate it all up in one afternoon. The texture was good, the flavor was excellent. The PB is not discernible, and for me, going to the effort of driving an hour to purchase tahini defeats the whole purpose of making such a delicious dish with most ingredients available at all times in my refrigerator and pantry. We toasted tortilla triangles and cut pitas into wedges and broiled them crips. DELISH. Thank you!!
Very easy and healthy recipe. A nice way to enjoy black beans.
