Mexican White Bean Hummus

Mexican White Bean Hummus

I’ve been totally obsessed with hummus lately. It all started after I whipped up a batch of The Most Delicious Hummus OF ALL TIME. The stuff is amazing. I ate it every day for weeks. I brought it to potlucks, and everyone gave it rave reviews. It’s still one of the most popular recipes on the blog. Anyway. Last week was Cinco de Mayo. Being obsessed with hummus but wanting to make something with Mexican flair, I came up with an idea: Mexican White Bean Hummus! Sub cannellini beans for some of the chickpeas, lime for the lemon, add a handful of Mexican spices, and top with Pico de Gallo. Voila! You have an equally delicious spin on the classic and ever-popular hummus. I hope you enjoy this quick, easy, and healthy recipe as much as I do!
