Jalapeno Hummus

Jalapeno Hummus is a healthy dip (or spread) with a little jalapeno kick.  Luckily it takes only 10 minutes to make, because this popular hummus disappears quickly!  

This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group™ and Rubbermaid and Sharpie but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #RubbermaidSharpie  http://cmp.ly/3/8vNxcO

With the Big Game just around the corner, I have been putting the finishing touches on my menu planning and coming up with some fun recipes.  In fact, it’s almost like planning for the holidays – mass quantities of lots of tasty foods to share with family and friends!  

After making Sweet Potato Hummus, I have been looking forward to making more varieties of homemade hummus. This time I thought something a little spicy was in order ~ something like Jalapeno Hummus!  With just a few simple ingredients and a food processor (or blender), you are 10 minutes away from one of the best hummus recipes ever!  Jalapeno Hummus is flavorful without being too spicy.  All of the flavors blend very nicely, with a little jalapeno kick at the end.  The recipe can easily be doubled (or tripled!), making Jalapeno Hummus ideal for game day entertaining.

Speaking of game day entertaining, I thought it would be fun to make some cute little signs to label the foods on our buffet spread.  Some raffia ribbon, cardstock and colorful Sharpie markers made it easy.  With a wide variety of colors, you can really get into the football spirit with team colors, little footballs, so many fun ideas!

As you stock up on all of your party food, don’t forget to pick up plenty of Rubbermaid food storage containers – not only for storage (you should see my pre-party fridge!) but also so your guests can take home all of those tasty leftovers!  I like to keep a stash of Sharpie markers next to the containers, so people can load up the containers with whatever foods they want to bring home and then label them right on the containers.

Plus I found an easy way to save some money while gathering my party supplies!  By sending a text with the word COUPONS to TARGET (type Target into the phone number section of your phone), I got a coupon for $1 off any Rubbermaid food storage and $1 off Sharpie 4 pack or larger delivered right to my phone.  How cool is that!   The coupon deal runs from January 25th to February 8th – perfect timing to help with your party planning needs.  And to make sure you have lots of properly labeled containers of Jalapeno Hummus to send home with your family and friends!
