  • Food processor


  • 2 15 ounce can garbanzo beans, drained but reserve the juice from one can
  • 2 large garlic cloves
  • 2 Limes juiced
  • cup tahini paste
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • teaspoon paprika
  • teaspoon cumin
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 large jalapeños seeded & cut in chunks
  • 1 cup fresh cilantro


  • Combine all ingredients in the bowl of a food processor, except for the reserved garbanzo bean juice. Pulse until the ingredients have been finely blended.
  • With the processor running add the reserved garbanzo bean juice slowly until you reach a paste consistency. Scrape down the bowl and continue to process for one minute.
  • Transfer the hummus to a serving bowl, cover well and let stand until all the flavors are infused, at least 1 hour. Preferrably make one day ahead of time.
  • Garnish with your desired toppings (cucumbers, olives, jalapeños, etc.  Or transfer to a sealed container and refrigerate for up to 7 days.
  • To freeze, place inside covered airtight containers or heavy-duty freezer bags.
