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!

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!

Forgot the garlic, added a serrano chile because I LOVE spice plus a splash of lime! Good stuff!

Great recipe, thanks! I liked that it was made in a blender as not everyone uses food processors. I added 1/3 c sesame tahini as this is a traditional ingredient used in making hummus. I also added a bit more olive oil, and a good squeeze of a ripe lemon.
