Roasted Red Pepper, Tomatillo and Cilantro Hummus Recipe

Roasted Red Pepper, Tomatillo and Cilantro Hummus

  • Author: Audra


  • 1 can of low sodium 15oz garbanzo beans, drained
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 jalapeno, seeds and ribs removed for a milder flavor
  • 3 tomatillos
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 2 TBSP tahini paste
  • 2 TBSP fresh chopped cilantro
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • fresh ground pepper to taste
  • olive oil


  1. First preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Cut the red pepper, jalapeno, tomatillos in quarters and peel the garlic cloves.
  3. In a small baking dish (I used a pie plate) coat red pepper, jalapeno, garlic and tomatillos evenly in olive oil. Place in oven and roast for 20-25 minutes.
  4. Now place the roasted red pepper, jalapeno, tomatillos, and garlic in a food processor.
  5. Add the remaining ingredients to the food processor and pulse until smooth. Best served chilled. (in my opinion)
  6. Serve with veggies, crackers, pita bread, or pretzels chips.
  7. Enjoy!
