On a recent road trip to Arizona to teach Medicine Cabinet Makeover classes, my friend and I stopped in Scottsdale in search of a healthy lunch and on a whim, decided to try a place called PITA JUNGLE. Have you heard of it? They are all over Arizona – much to our happy surprise (we ate there EVERY day of our trip – no joke!). Sandi and I both fell completely head over heels in love with their Cilantro Jalepeno Hummus. Since we don’t have a Pita Jungle less than 12 hours away from us, we had to find a recipe! I scoured the internet and actually found quite a few attempts at a copy-cat recipe and came up with the one I have below. It’s been too long since the trip to remember if it tastes close enough to call it a copy-cat, but it sure tastes amazing!
Lucky for me, our local Maceys (grocery store – not department store) had a case lot sale that included garbanzo beans. I don’t see that too often, so I snatched up a ton in anticipation of LOTS of hummus! The veggie tray you see above was my lunch today. I shared a few bites with the kiddos outside. Not a shabby meal, eh?!
