Cilantro Jalapeno Hummus

With spring's arrival, we start to crave cool and refreshing foods. Hummus is a refrigerator staple for me and earlier this week I bought a ton of chickpeas with the intention of making roasted chickpeas, hummus and Chickpea & Roasted Tomato Soup. Tomato soup will be tomorrow's adventure. But for now, here is the hummus I whipped up thanks to leftovers and an idea from my best bud.

Cilantro Jalapeno Hummus
1 can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 cup cilantro leaves
3 cloves garlic
1 large jalapeno, cut into chunks (use smaller for less heat)
Fresh lemon juice from 1 lemon (or 2 limes)
Sea Salt
Extra-virgin olive oil

Put garbanzo beans, garlic, cilantro, jalapeno, salt and lemon juice in food processor. Pulse and pour in stream of olive oil until smooth. Dip with your favorite crackers and veggies.

Note: this packs a good spice punch!
