Spicy Black Bean hummus is lightened up without tahini sauce and a quick and easy low point snack to have throughout the week to help keep you on a track!
Traditionally, hummus is made with canned chickpeas but have you ever made it with black beans before? It's like a Mexican spin on classic hummus! It still has the traditional hummus ingredients such as garlic, beans, and tahini paste and some jalapeno added to it to give it a spicy kick. You can dip it with tortilla chips, veggies, or some pita chips.
¼th of the hummus dip is 0 points and 148 calories.
Just to let you know this recipe was originally posted in March 2011. The recipe has been recently updated to make it WW friendly, with new photos, and new points.
You might be wondering how this is zero points if it is blended, and isn't that supposed to be more points like a smoothie? The short answer is no because you don't drink hummus don't do? You eat it with vegetables and chips. This is a healthy snack that can be saved in airtight containers in the fridge to have throughout the week with some fresh vegetables.

I am not affiliated with WW formerly known as Weight Watchers in any way. I am just a member who likes to create WW recipes and share them with everyone. Freestyle is the name of the current program of WW and smart points are calculated for the recipes. Some blogs list them as freestyle smart points and some list them as smart points. There is no difference between the 2.
How is this a WW recipe?
NO FOOD is off limits on WW and WW themselves stresses that a lot on their social media pages. That is one reason why I love WW. You can pretty much eat ANYTHING to lose weight just as long as you stay in your daily points range or are in a calorie deficit.
