Spicy Olive Hummus

Spicy Olive Hummus

I love hummus! It's my go-to snack with veggies or crackers. I love it on sandwiches and wraps instead of mayo, on chili instead of sour cream, and I even use it as pasta sauce. This spicy version featuring FreshJax Ghost Pepper Sea Salt and olives is so yummy! The olives give it a rich, savory flavor without having to add much salt, which is perfect since a little Ghost Pepper goes a long way.

Ingredients

  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 2 (15 oz) cans chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 3 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 cup olives (I used green, but feel free to use any kind you'd like)
  • 1 tsp FreshJax Ghost Pepper Sea Salt
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil

Directions

  1. Remove the top of the bell pepper and discard seeds. Chop into large pieces.
  2. Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Feel free to add a little water if needed to get a creamy consistency.
  3. Taste and add more Ghost Pepper Sea Salt, if you like it spicier.
