Part hummus, part quesadilla. And you get the hummadilla.

This concoction is a ripoff of a menu item at the Magnolia Cafe in Austin, Texas. And it is SOOOOOO GOOOOOOD. Yum. Yum yum.


(serves 1)

2 whole-wheat flour tortillas
1/4 c to 1/2 c hummus (depending how much you love it)
1/4 c black beans
chopped up tomatoes and onions and/or red salsa to your liking

To crisp up the tortillas without using oil, heat them on a med-high to high heat skillet for a few minutes each side. They should become crisp and firmer, almost like a tostada. Slather a tortilla with hummus, then top with black beans and salsa. Put the other tortilla on top, and put it all back in the skillet to warm it up. Then just slice it in half. And you're done.

Mmm.. I also think this would be so awesome with some black olives, and also some jalapeƱos, so I'll have to try that next time. The hummus I used was made with chickpeas, walnuts, and hot sauce. Yum!

Looks yummy! I didn't get any of that, but I did get some of the hummus with pita chips and it was delish.

Your blog is one of my favs! I love hummus but often buy it. You mention in this recipe, making hummus out of walnuts. I thought hummus was just ground garbanza beans with seasoning. Guess I'll go google hummus. Anyway, I'm gona try this as looks so good!

Hi Sam, thanks!
Sorry, I should have mentioned...the hummus is made from ground garbanzos but I also ground up some walnuts into the it a more velvety taste!

What a great idea. I love hummus and black beans, so why not combine them. I see you put walnuts in your hummus. I've never done that but it sounds amazing!

Love that you haven't gooped this up with cheese.

Hey Christie, I agree, cheese would just overcomplicate this! :)
