This jalapeno hummus recipe is super easy to prepare and a real crowd-pleaser! Don't believe me? Well, then see for yourself!
Our low carb hummus dip follows the same concept as the classic Levantine dip or spread prepared with chickpeas.
But we make ours with tahini paste, lemon juice, salt, garlic, olive oil, jalapeno, cilantro or parsley, and Cacique Queso Fresco.
The difference is that in this keto hummus, cooked cauliflower is used instead of chickpeas, making it low-carb. Then, it is topped with cooked Cacique Beef Chorizo and crumbled queso fresco.
It is served with celery sticks or baby carrots, which are also low in carbs.
HOW TO MAKE KETO CAULIFLOWER JALAPENO HUMMUS RECIPE
- First, microwave the cauliflower with a bit of water and 2 cloves of garlic.
- Second, process or blend in a food processor or blender with olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, salt, (sesame) paste, jalapeno, cilantro, and queso fresco until smooth.
- Last, place keto hummus into a bowl and top with cooked chorizo and crumbled cheese. Voila! Could any appetizer be easier than that?
