I’m a girl who likes to snack on hummus.
Smooth, creamy bean dip flavored with fresh ingredients like cilantro and limes is always sure to satisfy my 3pm snack cravings.
Easy blender cilantro lime white bean hummus is super easy to make at home. No chopping veggies. Minimal cleanup. If you’re like me and you don’t own a large food processor, your blender will save the day!
You may think of chickpeas when you think of hummus. But I’m going to change your thought process on that. I made my hummus with white beans. Using white beans results in a smoother, milder hummus. It’s perfect for those who don’t like chickpeas. Ken doesn’t like chickpeas. One time he said “I do not like those things” after I showed him a can of chickpeas. But he liked my cilantro lime white bean hummus.
I like my hummus packed with fresh flavors. Cilantro, lime and chipotle are a few of my most favorite flavors to use in salsa and marinades. Since I love those flavors so much, I decided to make a white bean hummus with them. I packed this hummus full of cilantro, lime juice, garlic and chipotle pepper in adobo sauce. The chipotle pepper lends a tiny bit of heat, for those who love a little kick of heat in their dips. If you’re not a fan of heat, you can omit it.
I used gluten free rice and almond crackers for dipping. But you can use your favorite chip, cracker or veggie for dipping. Or you can eat it straight from the bowl with a spoon.
