Enjoy this Mexican twist on the traditional hummus with crackers, veggies or in a sandwich. Bring it to your next dinner party if you want to please everyone.

Well, everyone except those who hate cilantro, which seems to be a big bunch. I don’t know anyone personally though.

It is very easy to make, just blend all the ingredients together!

I used my nutribullet to make it since I don’t have a food processor.

  1. Looks good. Hummus seems to have come into fashion a little bit here in DF! Fair to say I’ve been binging on it quite a lot in-between taco campechanos. I might have to give this a try 🙂
