This No-Fuss Jalapeno Hummus is similar to a traditional Mediterranean hummus, except it adds in plenty of jalapenos and this recipe requires no tahini (making it less expensive to make too).
I call this Jalapeno Hummus “no fuss” because it’s truly one of the easiest dips you will have ever make. You’ll use a jar of Mezzetta Deli-Sliced Tamed Jalapeno Peppers, which means you won’t won’t have to mess with chopping a fresh jalapeno. And like the name says, Mezzetta Jalapeno Peppers are tame. You will be adding the entire jar of jalapeno peppers into this recipe, but don’t let that frighten you — while you’ll have loads of jalapeno flavor, and it’s a bit spicy, it isn’t crazy, my-mouth-is-on-fire hot.
Mezzetta has so many great products — the photo below shows the ones I buy most often. I love that when I am buying their products, I am supporting a family-owned business who is committed to bringing the high quality foods to its customers. Their peperoncinis are the BEST on sandwiches and those roasted red peppers are my favorite for my Roasted Red Pepper Dip recipe. You could even substitute the jalapenos in this recipe with them, if you prefer.
As I mention, this Jalapeno Hummus is so easy. All of the ingredients are combined in a food processor (I love my Cuisinart food processor) — and it doesn’t even matter what order you put them in. Just throw them in and process until smooth.
When it done, spoon it into a bowl, add a drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkle of smoked paprika (if you wish), and serve with crackers, tortilla chips, or pita bread.
