Black Bean Hummus Shrimp Wraps

Hummus for dinner: Jalapeno Black Bean Hummus

Note: This post is part of Knuckle Salad’s Hummus All Day Long initiative. Man, if nine-year-old me could read this blog—or even 20-year-old me, if I’m totally honest—she would make such a face about the gratuitous use of beans in my recent recipes.
