This dish takes all of your favorite flavors from falafel (hence the fala) and adds in the fiery spice of jalapeños (hence the jala) to make a hummus that is incredibly delicious and beautiful to boot. Plus, this recipe is easy to make and will go over great at any event you decide to set it out at. But be forewarned – It's spicy.
