Roasted Jalapeño Hummus #SundaySupper

Roasted Jalapeño Hummus from

Happy Sunday everyone! Today I am bringing you my latest obsession. Well, I am kinda obessed with hummus period, but this particular one is at the top of my play list and my fridge hasn't been minus it for more than a day over the last month. Ya, I am that obssesed. Soooo when I found out Sunday Supper was throwing a virtual pool party this week I knew I had to bring this for everyone.

I sure wish we were having a real pool party. The temps have been in the 90's for quite some time now in Western Washington, and us Pacific Northwesters are not used to that at all! None of us have air conditioning, who needs it here? So when it gets this hot, I mean like OhhEmmGeee have we arrived in hell hot, we have no idea what to do with ourselves. 

We have taken to the living room, with a fan, and all of the blinds drawn. I feel like a mole. A big, hot, sweaty, mole! UGH!

To console myself, I have been consuming mass quantities of this hummus! It has become my lunch of choice. Some veggies, some hummus, maybe a few pita chips? Oh ya, that is hummus heaven my friends. 

I even have Kevin on the band wagon! Crazy stuff peeps, crazy stuff.

But I have branched out from my typical hummus habit, to using it on sandwiches in place of mayo. Helloooooooooooo it's so good! It takes that ho hum ham sammy to new heights. I love it!

Another way I have been devouring eating this in the place of guacamole. See, a while back, I suddenly developed an allergy to avocados. 

I know. 

It is sad. 

Let's observe a moment of silence.

However, my newest BFF has all but erased the thought of avocados from my mind. 

Until I see a photo on Pinterest. 

Then I shed a silent tear.

Butttttttttt all I have to do is grab my hummus out of the refrigerator and I am a happy happy girl again. 

I am tellin' ya gang. You must make this. And then slather it all over everything and anything. 

Except maybe your dog. 

I would stick to sandwiches and burgers if I was you.

Creamy with that jalapeño kick, this Roasted Jalapeño Hummus is perfect as a dip with pita chips and veggies, in the place of mayo on a sandwiches, or a guacamole substitute on your burgers or tacos. 


  • 3 jalapeños
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 (15-ounce) can chickpeas (garbanzo beans), drained (recommend Bush's Beans)
  • 2 tablespoons tahini
  • 2 limes, juiced
  • Kosher salt
  • A generous handful of fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1/4 cup olive oil (or more if needed)
  • Chili powder


  1. Bring your oven rack to the top of your oven, and heat your broiler to high.
  2. Drizzle the jalapeños with a bit of olive oil and place the on a baking sheet under the broiler. Broil, turning as needed, until the skin has bubbled and charred. Remove the peppers and place them in a bowl. Cover the boil tight with cling wrap and allow the peppers to steam for 15 minutes, or until cool enough to handle.
  3. Peel the skin off the peppers (if you can't get it all that is OK). Remove the stem and seeds and place them in a food processor with the chick peas, garlic, tahini, lime juice, cumin, salt, and cilantro. As you run the processor, drizzle the olive oil in from the top until the hummus reaches your desired consistancy. Ad more oil if needed.
  4. Spoon the hummus into a bowl and sprinkle with chili powder and cilantrol leaves for presentation if desired.
Prep Time: 00 hrs. 20 mins.

  1. You know you had me at jalapeño.

    1. Yup, that is how I got Kevin too!! He roasts jalapenos every time we grill and eats them with everything!

  2. I am heading straight to the kitchen to make this... right after my moment of silence. No avocados! Poor you.

    1. Oh I know, it is sad. I walk past them in the store and pout. The only thing that would have been worse is if I was allergic to wine!

  3. I am a hummus girl, too. I am so sorry to hear about your (avocado) loss. I am offering a bit of a slight prayer up for you. Sad. Back to the hummus. I cannot wait to try this and using it in place of mayo...I bow to you, oh genius.

    1. Thank you so much Terri! I can't wait fo you to try it!!

  4. Wow, I cannot wait to try this. I have a slew of jalapenos in my fridge just waiting to be grilled and eaten!!

  6. Wow! Look at that gorgeous color! We are big jalapeno fans, so this is a must-make for me!

  8. Jalapeno Hummus is one of my favortie Sabra I can make it at home!

  9. Ho... lee... crow!! Yes please!

  10. This does sound fantastic! Would be perfect as the bean spread for tostadas, too!

  11. I make ordinary hummus almost every week and it's time to shake things up with your marvelous spicy version!

  12. I am sure this is really good to make a sandwich with this. And I am thinking serving it as sauce with pork chop or chicken chop. I am expecting it to be really yummy. :)
