A healthy snack with a kick.
Course Condiments, Snack


  • 15oz can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 2 Tablespoons tahini
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh Jalapeño, chopped
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt


  • Place all ingredients in a food processor or blender and blend until smooth. You may need to scrape the sides of the processor partway through in order to fully incorporate the ingredients.
  • Enjoy as a spread for a sandwich or wrap as seen in next recipe. Or enjoy as a dip for veggies, pretzels, pita chips, etc.


  • If you want to add more spice to your hummus, add more jalapeño. If you prefer a milder level of heat, remove the seeds from the jalapeño before chopping and adding it to the hummus.
  • To avoid getting the jalapeño oils on your hands (and potentially in your eyes if you rub them) wear plastic gloves while chopping it.
