Good but not great. I made this recipe twice - exactly following the recipe directions, and again with some modifications. After the modifications I'd probably give it more of a 4 star rating, but without it just a 3. First of all, 2 ounces of the jalepeno (with seeds) was MUCH too hot - and I LOVE hot and spicy food: the hotter the Thai/Mexican/Chinese food the better it tastes to me. But the heat from the jalepeno completely overpowered the rest of the ingredients. It was better the second time when I removed 2/3 of the seeds. Also, I found that the addition of a bit of olive oil (1/2 tsp, perhaps?) added some much needed richness to the hummus which was lacking without the tahini. Finally, I added some salt and white pepper and increased the cumin and garlic. Much better. There's still something missing, but I don't know how it could get better without adding tahini at this point. I will make again, especially since I almost always have the ingredients on hand.
