Pinto Bean HummusSometimes you get tired of garbanzo bean hummus. Or sometimes no matter how many times you paw through the cans on the pantry shelves, those chickpeas remain illusive.

This pinto bean hummus could also masquerade as “refried” beans – without the refry – but all of the expected flavors are right there. All you’d have to do is warm it up prior to eating. I served mine at room temperature in a wrap loaded with broccoli slaw, baby kale, sprouts and generous portions of ranch dressing.

1 15 oz. can pinto beans, rinsed and drained
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 tbsp. tahini
juice of 1 lime
1 tbsp. Bragg Liquid Aminos
1 tsp. cumin
1/4 tsp. smoked paprika
pinch coriander
pinch ground black pepper
handful of cilantro

In a food processor, combine the pinto beans through black pepper and process until smooth. Add the cilantro and pulse a few times to chop the cilantro.

    Oohhhh, looks amazing! I’m making this when I get home!

  2. Yes ma’am, I DO INDEED get tired of garbanzo bean hummus! LOVE this twist and can’t wait to try. : )

  3. Somer says:

    Oh. so. good! Pintos are my favorite bean. Hands down. Well, actually it’s a fight with black beans and garbanzos, but hey. I’m in love. Thanks for the Ranch Dressing shout out ;) xx

  4. I would never have thought of using pinto beans in place of chickpeas but it looks great. I love the wee owls, too. :-)

  5. Oh and LOOK at that super adorable owl bowl!! Squeeeee.

  6. This looks amazing! I’ve tried hummus’s made from different beans, but I’ve never tried making them before, even though I’ve always wanted to! And I love refried beans, so I’ve got to give this a try!

  7. Yum, it looks exactly like refried beans! Love it :)

  8. I wish you had a LOVE button instead of LIKE for this post! Whoooza that look good.

  9. JL says:

    This looks great!

  10. This looks amazing! Especially that wrap! I like change ups on traditional recipes.

  11. Becky says:

    Ooh this looks great! I ate so much chickpea hummus over the holidays, I’m definitely ready to mix things up!

  12. I’m not sure I could handle pinto bean hummus. I think it would be too close to refried beans for me and we eat those a lot, minus the frying part.
    I do vary my flavors up on hummus often though.

  13. Sarah says:

    That would be nice to dehydrate for this coming summer, it’d make a good spread for wraps when hiking :)

  14. Love this Annie!!! I adore hummus and I have never tried to make it with pinto beans – a must try :-)

  15. biggsis says:

    Great idea. Why not branch out from garbanzos? And the spice combo also sounds like a refreshing change. Thanks!

  16. Love the idea of using Pinto Beans for hummus! Those wraps look awesome by the way.

  17. I’m a sucer for refried beans. but I’ve been trying to avoid them in my tacos–which is why I switched to using hummus. Now I can absolutely have the best of both worlds without the guilt and fat. Woohoo!!

  18. Little Sis says:

    Yummy! We’re always looking for more spreadable goodness – this would be a great addition to burrito night. Thanks!

  19. delicious! I’m so glad you opted to spread your hummus on the traditional wrap. It looks divine, and I LOVE your owl bowl!!!

  20. Food Stories says:

    Mmmm – Looks too good not to try :-)

  22. Shira says:

    YUM! This looks perfect Annie – funny I JUST made a ‘what’s in the house’ hummus this morning for a large party tomorrow :) Who says hummus has to mean chickpeas? And I love pintos!

  23. Sophie33 says:

    I make other creations of beans all the time! Your tasty creationis a great one! I experment all the time! Yummmm!

  24. Holy guacamole, I love this! Especially as a spread in wraps, yummo!

  25. Vegan Rabbit says:

    Oh my gosh that looks absolutely delectable! Your pictures are always so beautiful. Presentation is always key, and you know this very well. Before we eat food with our mouths we must first eat food with our eyes and I’ve got my mouth full right about now!

  26. Kristy says:

    I love this idea! I’m the kind of person who may or may not have eaten refried beans straight from the can in college. This looks like a much healthier and better tasting version of my lazy college girl snack!

  27. castaway5555 says:

    I doubled the recipe – added a bit more lime juice, some water and evo, as well … used soy sauce. Rather than cilantro, used spinach. Yummy … love the texture. I make tons of garbanzo hummus; this is a great alternative. And, yes, I love pinto beans, too.

  28. […] 1 cup hummus – You can use store-bought or make your hummus from scratch. […]

  29. […] Pinto Bean Hummus – Another chickpea-alternative! This is sort of a southwest-style hummus starring pinto beans […]
