Eddie Jackson's Secret to Perfect Hummus Will Be Trending in 2020
Plus, the recipe takes just six minutes to make!
In this series, we're showing off some of the coolest recipes, tips and tricks we've learned from chefs in the all-new Food Network Kitchen app.
When it comes to mega-trends of the last decade, hummus is definitely at the top of the charts. The Mediterranean dip is now a staple in American grocery stores in more flavors than we can name — including chocolate! This year though, we think Eddie Jackson's secret hummus ingredient will be the new flavor for which we're all clamoring.
On the all-new Food Network Kitchen app, Eddie teaches a class on how to make the perfect hummus with one unexpected ingredient: Tajin. This seasoning blend has been a staple in Mexican kitchens for years, and is now making it's way to the US. It's a blend of chile powder, salt and dehydrated lime that's commonly used to add a citrusy kick to tropical fruit. (You can even find it on the famous Dole Whip at Disney World.) We've named Tajin one of our top food trends for 2020.
If you've never made hummus at home before, Eddie's class is the perfect place to start. You only need six minutes to blend up the creamy dip since Eddie calls for canned chickpeas instead of dried. We recommend a solid food processor for this recipe to ensure a super smooth consistency.
Finally, make sure to keep your shaker of Tajin nearby when you're finally ready to serve up this dish. Eddie sprinkles some on top for extra flavor — a trick we can't wait to try with store-bought hummus the next time we're in a pinch!
