taco hummus

June 13, 2013

I have to admit I am not a fan of hummus. It never really appealed to me. But #1 likes it, and since I have been making it homemade, it is starting to grow on me. This is a really simple recipe but tastes great.

Once again I used Dyno-moms taco seasoning. I now always have some on hand to add to different dishes. If you haven't yet checked it out, you must!

1 1/2 cups chickpeas - I used dried and soaked them overnight
~1 cup light olive oil
~ 1/2 cup lime juice
1 heaping Tbsp Dyno-moms taco seasoning

Place all ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth and creamy. I started off with less olive oil and lime juice, but as I went along the hummus was too chunky and gritty. So I added more liquid as I needed and tasted as I went along. You may also want to add less seasoning and taste as you go. It can get spicy.

If you like this recipe you might enjoy my creamy taco dressing.
