Black beans are one of the staple ingredients of South America because they are so very versatile, healthy, and affordable. In this recipe, the flavor of hummus is punched up with jalapeños, and traditional chickpeas are replaced with black beans. The hummus has a deep, rich color, wonderfully creamy texture, and a bright taste from all of the fresh herbs. Try it on a sandwich instead of mayonnaise, or with raw vegetables. If you use canned beans instead of cooking your own, be sure to rinse them under cold water first— it removes much of the sodium.
