Great hummus! I love spicy food and this was right on the money! I did however omit the cayenne so as to actually taste the hummus flavor along with the jalapeno. I think this recipe is just as tasty without the cayenne. Read More

Good recipe BUT...be forwarned that is is VERY spicy. We cut the cayenne and black pepper back to 1 tsp. each and like it much better. Read More

This recipe is great only the amount of cayenne pepper and black pepper is way too much. Cut those by about 2/3 and you should have a tasty and well-presented snack or appetizer. Read More

This was a HUGE hit!! The first time I made it I left out the banana peppers and garlic and cut the cayenne and black pepper in half. It was alot prettier and not as spicy but the 2nd time I followed the recipe and it was so good. Very very spicy but so flavorful! Read More

I had high hopes but was disappointed. The heat was fine but something was off. I'm not sure whether it needed more tahini or chick peas. Read More

This is a really tasty dip. I modified a little though b/c I wanted to be able to taste the dip and not just HOT. The only change I made was to add another 16 oz. can of garbanzo beans and just used a tsp. of cayenne pepper and black pepper. Cuts the fire in half. Great as a dip for fresh veggies! Read More

This is still the best hummus recipe I have found. You must really love spicy though. I wouldn't personally recommend cutting any ingredients maybe even suggest more jalapeños. But if you want spicy but not mouth scorching perhaps you should cut back. Anyways a terrific recipe! Read More
