Let’s Cook: Black Bean Hummus

By Allison Kociuruba, July 6, 2013  |  Meet the Blogger  |  More Posts by Allison Kociuruba

Learn a twist on an old favorite when Healthy Eating Chef Chad shows us how to make hummus with black beans instead of garbanzos in this Mexican-inspired Black Bean Hummus. You can add chiles for an extra kick or leave out for a milder, kid-friendly version. It’s perfect for a summer dip or as a spread in a veggie wrap.

What’s your favorite way to eat hummus? Got some inspired flavor combinations? We’d love to hear.

This sounds tasty but it should not co-opt the word "hummus". "Hummus" means "garbanzo" in Arabic. Also, traditional hummus only has garbanzos, lemon, sesame (tahini), and salt. Some people add roasted garlic. So, really this recipe should be called "black bean with tahini."

Pls give the measurements for the wonderful recipes you are posting. it is hard to replicate a recipe without having the measurements; the visual is the how to, not how much

I purchased a large amount of Kidney Beans yesterday. I soaked them and noticed that at least half split at the beginning of the soaking process. What does that mean? They were on sale Jan 8th 2015 in Roosevelt Store in Seattle. $2.19 per lb. i'm making chili for a group and it will be a lot of work, so I hope the beans are good? Please let me know. Thank you.

@JULIE - That typically just means that the beans are dried and are splitting and should not mean that they are bad. If you have any doubt you can always check with the store and speak with the Bulk team to see if they have had any other issues.
