Jalapeño Hummus

  • Save

Looking for something new that is easy to chew?

Jalapeño Hummus is soft, filling, and quite flavorful. But that’s not all, it requires no chewing!  Adding jalapeño to hummus spices up both the color and the flavor of this versatile dish. Serve it with literally anything you want. My favorite additions to serve with hummus are cooked vegetables, like zucchini or carrots. Naan bread is amazing with this too, however not everyone will have an easy time chewing or swallowing Naan bread. If you can’t decide which foods to eat this with, no worries, Jalapeño Hummus is good enough to just eat by itself with a spoon.

    Easy To Chew

    Jalapeño Hummus has a single smooth texture and is soft enough that it requires no chewing. 

    Going vegetarian or trying to eat less meat? Hummus is a fantastic source of plant-based protein.

    You can use either a food processor or a blender to make this hummus. Check out this picture showing the difference between the hummus made with a food processor or a Vitamix blender. The results speak for themselves.

    If you don’t already have a Vitamix, I personally think it is mandatory for anyone with dentures. Click HERE if you want to learn more about the Vitamix.

    This makes the smoothest purees on planet earth!
