Mexican Hummus

hummus recipe

Making your own hummus is great fun and can bring an interesting variety to a meal or snack! It’s also easy to store in your fridge for a couple of days, so you can always make a huge batch and enjoy it without worrying that it will spoil.

What’s good about tahini?

Tahini is the most consistent ingredient used to make hummus, and it’s a fantastic source of nutrients!

Tahini is rich in many of the important minerals, such as phosphorus, magnesium, lecithin, iron, and potassium. Additionally, it’s a great source of methionine, which helps the liver during the detoxification process.

When it comes to easy ways to get calcium into your diet, tahini is the perfect choice. Even relatively small amounts of tahini contain a decent dose of calcium. On top of all of this, it promotes healthy cell growth whilst also protecting against anaemia!

Mexican Hummus Recipe

To make enough hummus to serve a party of four, gather the following ingredients:

  • 1 x 400g tin of black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 50g of coriander
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1/4 cup or 60ml of tahini
  • Zest of 1 lime
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt
  • 1 tsp. of coconut nectar, honey or maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup or 60ml water


All you have to do to create this delicious hummus is simply put all of the ingredients except the water into your food processor or high-speed blender. Give this a good whizz until it has reached close to the desired texture.

The next step is to gradually pour in the the water until the you have that lovely hummus consistency. You can then top this with some more zest and even some chilli flakes if you like. It’s now ready to serve!

This hummus is especially great with corn chips or sliced red pepper!
