I’m glad I was introduced to Hummus. They’re very simple and sometimes simple are good, sometimes even great. They are good source of protein, and if you add veggies in them, you get additional bonus treat of vitamins. I’ve made few variations of them, they all have their own unique taste depending on the variation.

Cilantro and Jalapeno Hummus Recipe By SweetNSpicyLiving.com

Me being a lover of spicy food, I wouldn’t pass the chance of making this Jalapeno Cilantro Hummus. Although if you had seen all my other hummus variations, they are all spicy in some way. But this one has more zing because I used fresh jalapeno peppers, and added cilantro for a more fresh flavor and to make the heat subtle and enjoyable.
