Jalapeño and Lime Hummus

About 3 cups

Preparation Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: n. a.


Hummus is usually a pretty healthy thing on its own but it can be boring, flavor-wise. This is a Southwestern take on hummus, studded with pickled jalapeño peppers and seasoned with lime juice, garlic, cilantro and a surprising ingredient - peanut butter! This is excellent served with crudités or served on crackers. It is naturally gluten-free, so for those watching their gluten intake, this is a perfect snack or appetizer for you. This recipe is also forgiving - you can make it as hot as you want it.


  • 1 (16 oz.) can reduced sodium or no salt added chickpeas, chilled, then drained and rinsed
  • 1 - 2 tbsp. Smuckers Natural creamy peanut butter
  • 3 cloves fresh garlic
  • 2 heaping tbsp. pickled jalapeños, with the juice (or more to taste)
  • 1 - 2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp. fresh cilantro leaves, or more to taste
  • Juice of 1 large lime
  • Pinch of ground cumin, to taste
  • Pinch of crushed red pepper flakes, or more to taste
  • Pinch of sea or kosher salt, to taste


Combine all the ingredients in a food processor until smooth. Taste for seasonings, then scoop into a bowl and serve immediately or chill in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
