Spicy Black Bean Hummus Recipe

Beat Hummus Boredom With This Spicy Twist

There are tons of hummus varieties available to purchase, from roasted red pepper to spinach and artichoke. But making homemade hummus takes next to no time, tastes fresher — and the best part is you can experiment with unique ingredients to make it even more delicious and nutritious.

If you're always aiming to get more fiber in your diet, this recipe made with black beans instead of garbanzos will offer slightly more than a traditional hummus recipe. Half a cup of black beans contains six grams of fiber and seven grams of protein. And while chickpeas contain the same amount of protein, they only have five grams of fiber. Black beans are also slightly higher in iron, potassium, magnesium, and vitamin B1. Pair this tasty hummus with crackers or fresh veggies or smear it on toasted bread.
