Spicy Black Bean Hummus

Spice up your day with this yummy black bean hummus! This hummus is a great snack with some veggies or crackers. Make it a main dish by throwing it on a big salad or heat it up on a gluten free tortilla with some sautéed veggies and cheese to make a quesadilla. Or you could go the whole burrito bowl route and throw it into a bowl with brown rice/quinoa, shredded lettuce, veggies, cheese, guac and salsa.

Obvi this hummus is super versatile and can be incorporated into tons of dishes. It’s so easy to make and you can adjust the spice level to whatever you prefer, so it’s okay if you’re not crazy about spicy foods! If you are, feel free to toss in some extra too!
