This Spicy Black Bean Hummus recipe comes from Cooking Light. It’s easy, healthy and YUM-MY! I usually add an extra dash (or two!) of crushed red pepper, because I like spicy things, but you could always tone it down if that’s not your thing.
It’s a super easy “throw-everything-in-your-food-processor” recipe, which you can check out HERE.
For the past two Halloweens I’ve made this hummus with a spider web design on it. Last year I brought it to a friend’s Halloween Party, and this year I made it for our party.
I think it’s a cute Halloween appetizer and both the web and the spider are easy to make. For the web I use sour cream, while the little spider is made out of black olives. To pipe the web on, you can either use a pastry bag and tip or if you don’t have one, you can cut the corner off of a zip lock bag.
To make your web, first draw an X across your dip.
One of the uncut halves is going to be your spider’s body, the other is a little snack for you eat while you work. Place the olive body on the web and carefully put four olive strips on each side, positioning them like legs.
Of course you could make your spider web and spider on any dip of your choice. It doesn’t have to be the Spicy Black Bean Hummus…we just happen to love it. The green of a yummy guacamole might look cute with the spider web!
