Copy Cat Trader Joe’s Cilantro Jalapeño Hummus & a Giveaway!

cilantrohummusmain

Trader Joe’s has this three layer hummus that Brett and I are obsessed with.  It’s a combination of traditional,  Cilantro Jalapeño, and Spicy hummus, all layered in to one little container. Anytime we head to Salt Lake we try to make a stop at TJ’s to stock up.  But we’ve found we both really like the Cilantro Jalapeño layer– and we’re usually both digging for the last little bite of it…hovered over it…elbow to elbow.  Just kidding….kind of. 

To avoid any more marital conflict 😉 I thought I’d try to recreate it, and make a big ol’ batch of it for us both to enjoy.  And I think I nailed it!

All you need is garbanzo beans, a bunch of cilantro, jalapeños, limes, garlic, olive oil, and some salt.  And you pretty much just throw it all into your  blender or food processor and blend until it’s smooth and creamy.  Easy peasy.  You’ll want to let the hummus chill over night to really let the flavors meld together. 

Feel free to add more or less cilantro, jalapeños, and lime juice to your taste and liking!

    Cilantro jalapeno hummus is my faaaavorite! I love the TJ’s trio too, but this one is always by far my favorite. I always forget how easy it is to make at home.

    Oh so exciting! I would be SOOO happy if I won this, because I don’t have a food processor yet. I recently became a SAHM and have been cooking A LOT MORE. Pinterest as given me so many great ideas for food, so I’m always making something different. I find that if I am cooking the same meals all the time I don’t enjoy cooking…but since it’s all different I can’t wait to get in the kitchen!

    That TJ’s 3-layer hummus is my favorite too and the cilantro is my favorite layer. Tonight I was searching for a recipe so that I can make my own single-layer cilantro hummus! What fun to kind a kindred spirit who’d already done it!
