Spiced Black Bean Hummus

Once upon a time, hummus meant one thing: a dip or spread of garbanzo beans with lemon, tahini, olive oil, and spices. No more, though. These days, hummus can mean a whole buffet table’s worth of delicious spreads, made with all kinds of beans and vegetables. Here, canned black beans stand in for the traditional legume, for intriguing (and just plain tasty) results.

For more homemade hummus, check out our Easy Hummus, Hummus with Kalamata Olives, and Spicy Carrot Hummus. For more black bean-based meals, see our Cuban black beans recipe.
