Cilantro Jalapeno Hummus

Cilantro Jalapeno Hummus
2 T tahini
3 T lemon juice
2 cloves garlic, minced (add extra if you are making garlic hummous)
1 can garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
3 T water
1/2 tsp salt
1 bunch cilantro, loosely chopped
1 jalapeno, seeded and diced

Optional: You could skip the cilantro and jalapeno for a garlic hummus Blend well in your food processor! Serve with any vegetable, chips and pitas.

FYI: If you want it less spicy make sure you remove all the membrane from the jalapeno and make sure you get a nice a shiny (no white lines) jalapeno. The darker and more white lines a jalapeno has on it the spicer it is.

ooh--i have a bunch of cilantro and serrano peppers to use up--and a jar of tahini from a year (!?!) ago. maybe i could tweak the recipe for this? (is tahini still good? it's been in the fridge...)
