Do you know what I find terrifying?
Like Halloween-level super scary?
More frightening than accidentally watching one of those ghosty shows on the History Channel?
A world without beans.
Black beans, pinto beans, kidney beans, garbanzo beans, cannellini beans—I love them all.
Do you know what else is fabulous?
Because it contains beans.
This black bean hummus goes so far beyond merely substituting black beans for chickpeas. Between the cilantro, lime, cumin, garlic, and jalapeño, this is one of those things that goes from tasty to addictive within a single bite. You can get all healthy with it and pair the hummus with carrot and celery sticks. There’s toasted pita, or perhaps spreading it in a tortilla to help give a normal burrito a flavorful kick. It’s great with chips, if a simple bean dip vibe is what sounds yummy, and that’s really just the beginning of all the marvelous ways you can enjoy this gorgeous stuff.
It’s also insanely delicious licked straight off the spoon at two in the morning.
Um…or so I’ve been told.
