Black Bean Hummus is addictive! It is so good and easy to make, it will become one of your go-to recipes. My friend Prissy brought it to a party and it was so good, it was all gone in no time! She shared her recipe with me and then, like any good chef, I gave it my own flare. It is a little spicy, which mixes well with the garlic flavor and the earthiness of the cumin and coriander.  It is a fresh addition to your party or any meal!  It’s DELICIOUS!

This recipe is easily made in a food processor. If you don’t have one, a blender will do the job, just divide your ingredients into small batches and then mix all in a bowl.

When adding cayenne pepper, if you are not a fan of spicy food, start with adding ¼ of a teaspoon to the blend and taste. If it is not spicy enough, or you can take a little more heat, add the rest of the cayenne. Start with 1 teaspoon of salt and 1 tablespoon of pepper and then add more if needed. Salt is necessary to bring the flavors together.
