Holiday Recipe Spectacular – Appetizer – Red Pepper Hummus

This appetizer has it all.  The punch of zesty flavor and festive holiday colors; the red of the pepper and the green of the jalapeno will ring out to your guests, “oh come, all ye faithful and dip a warm pita into my bowl!”


  • 2 (16 ounce) cans garbanzo beans, drained
  • 1 c roasted red peppers (NOT from a jar)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons tahini
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 jalapeno, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 3/4 teaspoons cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 3/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • pita bread or pita chips

In a food processor on low speed, combine the garbanzo beans, olive oil, lemon juice, tahini, garlic, and jalapeno until the ingredients start to blend.  Process until smooth. Season with black pepper, cayenne, cumin and oregano.  Add red peppers and garlic, then turn the speed to medium, and blend to your desired consistency.  Serve with warm pita triangles or pita chips.
