First, I live in Texas so our scale of what's hot is different from others. Hummus is my Spring 2007 perfection recipe (I keep making it until I get the perfect one- and then take it to all the parties and and bask in the compliments). I was thrilled to find a hummus recipe that added jalapenos (texas, in search of the perfect hummus....). I love this recipe. I did add more jalapenos and more lemon juice, double what the recipe called for, but that was due to our regional preferences. Big Tip: Make it ahead of time and let it sit in the refrigerator overnight. That's the secret that makes this recipe go from good to great. Thank you Andrew for posting this recipe. You just proved that any recipe can be made even better by "spicing it up" with the right ingredient.


Best hummus ever. You can make it with or without the curry - I like it without, my husband likes it with. Totally outshines all my friends hummus that they have been making for years. We will never buy hummus again. UPDATE: We've beek making this for a while now. First, you have to add tahini, it's not really hummus without it. Second, if its too thick, add some of the bean water from the garbanzos. Third, I still like it better without the curry and don't be stingy with the cumin! Fourth, I usually make this in batches of 6. You should too. It keeps for a while and it's just to die for. Make it for a party, put out half of it, if that goes put out more, and if you have some left at the end, use it for sandwiches or eat it as a snack with carrot sticks. Fifth, fresh jalapenos are awesome in this.


SOOOOOOOOO good! I got so many compliments and everyone wanted the recipe! I didn't use the curry powder since I didn't have any but it was still amazing! I also added 2 tablespoons of chopped fresh parsley - it looks pretty this way!
