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. Read More

Recipe was way too dry. I used 5 tbsp of olive oil and added 2 tbsp of lime juice for some extra flavor. Next time I think I'll add another jalapeño as it didn't have enough kick for my taste. Read More

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! Read More

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. Read More

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! Read More

YUM! I just made this modifying it a little to use what I had. I used black beans (since recently going vegetarian I buy them by the case) two roasted jalapeños leftover from last night's dinner added a little lemon juice because I always put it in my hummus and added a T. of tomatillo salsa verde (from this site) to thin it out rather than adding more oil. I normally would have used bean juice but I forgot to save it. I added some cumin just cause we love it and this is very good; I imagine it will be even better after resting in the fridge for a while. I'll make this often. Read More

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! Read More

I just made this recipe and it was great! I knew right away that I had to tweak it. I added a splash of lime hot sauce and a dash of water. I used grapeseed oil instead of olive oil because I wanted it to be lighter and fluffy. And I added a sprinkle of onion powder and two shakes of cumin powder. It tastes better than the one I get from Trader Joes. It was delish!!! Read More

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! Read More
