The heat of jalapeño peppers is balanced in this southwestern-inspired hummus by zesty lime. Serve with your favorite Guiding Star-earning tortilla chip or cut veggies. This would be an excellent recipe to serve with jicama sticks.

Tip: Take care while working with hot peppers: their oils can burn if you rub your eyes or touch your mouth. Wash your hands thoroughly with hot water and dish soap (the surfactants are better at breaking down oils than hand soap). Wear gloves if desired.


  • 2 jalapeños
  • 1 (15 oz.) can chickpeas
  • 3 Tbsp. lime juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 Tbsp. tahini
  • ½ tsp. cumin
  • ½ tsp. coriander
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 3 Tbsp. olive oil


  1. Place the oven rack in the top position and set the broiler to high. Place the jalapeños on a sheet of aluminum foil and roast, turning every few minutes until charred evenly (6-9 minutes).
  2. Wrap jalapeños in the foil and let sit until cool enough to handle safely (10 minutes).
  3. Remove the skin, split the peppers, and remove the seeds. Slice into thin strips and set aside.
  4. Place remaining ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth. Transfer to a serving bowl and stir in the sliced jalapeños.
  5. Serve warm or chilled.
