2 14.5 oz cans chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1 jalapeno pepper, chopped and seeds removed
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 T warm water
1 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cumin
1 cup freshly grated sharp cheddar cheese
Combine the chickpeas, jalapeno pepper, olive oil, water and salt in a vita-mix or food processor. Process until smooth (adding more water if you desire to thin the hummus out a bit).
Add the cheddar cheese and cumin and process again until everything is well combined.
