Fire Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

Updated: May 1, 2021

Is there anything better then fresh homemade red pepper hummus!?! I always have homemade hummus in my refrigerator. I add it to sandwiches, and my kids love to dip fresh veggies and pretzels into their hummus. Chickpeas are packed with nutrients, vitamins, fiber, and protein. It is a delicious and healthy snack and will be a big hit when served at parties and gatherings! Enjoy! xo

Prep time: 10 minutes Blend time: 1-2 minutes Cool in refrigerator: 30 minutes


-1 jar organic chick peas

-1 jar organic red peppers (fire roasted)

-1/4 cup tahini

-2 tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice

-1 1/2 garlic cloves

-1 teaspoon cumin

-2 tablespoons olive oil

-Pinch of salt

-Pinch of pepper

-Pinch of cayenne pepper

-Garnish with a sprinkle of paprika, a drizzle of olive oil, and a few chopped red peppers

Next Step:

-Drain and rinse the chick peas.

-Take the skin off of the chick peas. (This is a bit time consuming, but gives your hummus a smooth and creamy texture)

-In a food processor or blender add the chick peas, 2 fire roasted red peppers (or 3/4 cup of chopped fire roasted red peppers), tahini, lemon juice, garlic cloves, cumin, olive oil, salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper.

-Blend on high until you have a thick creamy hummus.

-Refrigerate for 30 minutes.

-Take out and pour into a bowl.

-Garnish with a drizzle of olive oil, a sprinkle of paprika, and a few chopped red peppers on top.

-Serve with fresh veggies and pita bread.
