This was a great recipe- very tasty. I also added a splash of lime juice. Fresh, it was delicious, but after a day, the flavors infused more and it was even better.

This is difficult at best to process in a blender. There is not enough liquid to process this easily. It is far too heavy on cilantro and not enough jalapeno. I also added tahini and more jalapeno. Sorry this did not resemble a good hummus. Other recipes on this web site are far better.

Great base recipe! Only things I did differently were to add an additional 1/2 jalapeno and quite a bit more cilantro as I thought it needed a bit more kick (and I'm not a fan of too much kick!). I added about 2 T of tahini and added more olive oil for a creamier consistency. I prefer using a food processor for hummus. A keeper, thanks!

The cilantro is so refreshing! Ad more jalapeno if you like a kick. I only used one small US grown jalapeno and it was perfect for what I wanted. I will make this again!

Made this dip to take in to work today. It has a nice thickness and a kick from the jalapeño pepper. I made this in the food processor, but had to add a little extra olive oil to thin it down. After testing this on chips and fresh veggies, I thought it needed fresh squeezed lime juice. It was good as written, but better with the lime juice added. My co-workers enjoyed this dip.

Wonderful flavours. Did not do well in the blender. After trying, I put it in a deep bowl and used the hand blender. It needed way more olive oil than a tablespoon. Definitely could use some lemon or lime. Made this for company and everyone loved it. Thanks tastywhalebacon. This is a keeper!

I made half with the jalapeno pepper and half without, so that all my taste tasters could sample this. I preferred the heat of the pepper! Because of starting with dried beans that were cooked, I found that I needed to add a little of the cooking liquid to make this the right consistency. Once all the cilantro was chopped, this was easy to put together! Thanks for the recipe!

I liked it, but there are some changes I'd recommend. I would prefer using half the garlic (it was a little strong for me). Also, it's way too thick, compared to typical store bought hummus, so I ended up adding some water and the juice of 1 lime. Oh and I did not add ANY salt and trust me it still has plenty of flavor (even with well-rinsed garbanzo beans.)
