Easy Black Bean Hummus

Recipe by  

"This is a delicious and easy hummus to make. It's great to replace the meat in sandwiches with this hummus - it gives the sandwich great flavor. You can add less lemon juice according to your preference. You can also add additional spices if you like. Enjoy with some chips!"

It is okay, I added a 1/4 tsp of cayenne pepper and 1/2 tbls of Mild Sauce from Taco Bell. This helped spice up the recipe a bit.

This was easy, and I could see it being part of a burrito wrap with lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream, and maybe shredded cheese. As a dip, not bad but a little bland, it needs to be accompanied with additional ingredients to be a WOW. 4 stars for ease and healthfulness!

I've made this three times in the last week. Each time it was a big hit. Lie most, I added extra spices. Red onion, Italian citrus salt, basil, Tabasco, olive oil and a clove of fresh garlic thinly sliced. I served it on pita chips and crostini. Both were a hit.

I saw this recipe and immediately made it. Its fabulous!! took me less than 5 min to whip up and it tastes amazing!! instead of lemon juice, I used lime juice since that's all I had on hand. With pretzels, this is a wonderful homework SNACK :3

This was really great. I made few changes because I didn't have dried basil or garlic powder. Instead I used one clove fresh garlic and about a teaspoon of chili powder. Also, I think this could benefit from a little EVOO to make it creamier. This is delicious!

Easy recipe! I would however not use as much basil in it next time.
