Roasted Red Bell Pepper Hummus


  • 16 ounces chickpeas  (I prefer to use dried and soak them over night instead of canned)
  • 6 ounces roasted red bell peppers  (I use the jarred peppers)
  • 1 jalapeno, seeded, diced
  • 4 cloves of  garlic, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 3 tablespoons chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • Toasted pita bread, for serving


Mix all ingredients, except olive oil and pita bread, in food processor until pureed, then slowly add in olive oil.

Let set up for 1 hour prior to serving.

Serve with toasted pita bread.

Delicious with homemade pita chips or fresh veggies!!!
