Thursdays have turned into girl’s night.  Watch Mad Men, craft, giggle and bitch.  oh, and eat of course.  We each bring a snack to share.  You can usually tell what kind of day it’s been depending on what shows up.

This week I’ve been getting back to center after the madness of Rebuilding Together is done.  One evening a few weeks ago, Christa and I grabbed a multi-pack of flavored hummus-es (is there really a plural?).  One was Jalapeno Cilantro Hummus and it was the clear winner of the pack!  So, I’ve set about to come up with my own version and judging by it’s reception the 2 times I’ve made this now, I’ll say it’s a success.  and super easy!

Throw this all into the food processor and blend until smooth:
1 19z can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
juice of 2 small limes
1/3 cup tahini
1/4 cup canola oil
1 bunch of cilantro, just chop off lower stems and throw the rest in
1 medium jalapeno, I started with half the seeds and later added remaining seeds
salt to taste (I started w 2t)

Serve with chips or veggies.  Makes a perfect accompaniment for Margaritas 😉  Enjoy!
