Easy Blender Cilantro Lime White Bean Hummus

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 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.

  1. I’m such a hummus addict so I’m loving this, Julie! I actually just bought a white bean hummus this weekend, but your homemade version looks so much better! I love the addition of cilantro, too!

  2. Julie, this hummus is right up my alley! I love the addition of the cilantro, reminds me of guac, which I love too!

  3. I am also a girl who likes to snack on hummus ;) I sometimes buy the tuscan white bean kind, and it’s one of my favorites! But this version sounds even better!

  4. What an awesome idea to use white beans and cilantro & lime – my fave! We do like chick peas a lot but this is a great new way to do hummus. Yum. And we use our blender ALL the time for stuff like this. Love. Pinning!!

  5. I got a new food processor and I have been obsessed with making my own hummus!! Love love the lim and cilantro combo here. I am sure it’s addicting. Just pass the pita chips now ;)

    • A new food processor is on my list of things to buy but I cannot find one I want! So the blender will do for now. And pita chips on the way! ;)

  6. I’m very much a traditionalist about hummus, having learned to make it from a Lebanese boyfriend many years ago. However, this one sounds well worth making, too.

  7. Super in love with this and really wishing i had some in front of me to try. Guess i just have to make my own. I love that you can just throw it in a blender and its no fuss!

  8. I love to snack wit Hummus too. And this looks delish and boy it sure is easy!!!!

  9. If I could put a tex mex spin on every single food on the face of the planet, I would. So clearly, I love this!

  10. We adore hummus and can go through a batch way too quickly. I love this white bean, lime, chipotle pepper and cilantro combo! It looks and sounds fabulous!

  11. What a fun twist on hummus! This looks so simple yet so addicting! I don’t even think I’d need any crackers. ;)

  12. Yum – I’m such a huge fan of hummus! And I LOVE the variation you made, it looks SO delicious!! :)

  13. I am adoring this version of hummus, Julie! I have never made a hummus with anything other than chickpeas ( I know I’m so out of the loop ). Definitely trying this! Pinned!

  14. Oh, my goodness … these photos are really making me want some of this hummus … now!
    I am such a ‘naughty’ snacker, mostly because I don’t have healthy enough snacks in the house. I really should make a big batch of hummus!
    Love this version with the mild beans and zingy lime and chipotle!

    • I try not to buy the naughty snacks because then I will eat them all the time. Although, I will totally dig into a jar of peanut butter and eat it by the spoonful. ;)

  15. A nutritious dip packed with flavors? Ready in 10 minutes? And you said I don’t have to chop any vegetables?! Where do I sign. Pinned!

    • Yeah! No vegetable chopping is what I dream about whenever I make anything. It doesn’t happen often but I’m so glad I can make this hummus so easily and without having to worry about chopping veggies! Thanks so much for stopping by and for the pin too, Meggan!

  16. I would seriously inhale this. It sounds SO GOOD!
