This version of Chipotle hummus is one that I use, in large part, as an ingredient to enhance a recipe (quinoa loaf) rather than a dip or spread. On occasion, I will use it as a spread on my morning veggie sandwich if I have a hankering for something super spicy. Just don’t be surprised if it takes some hair off your chest or maybe adds it…ladies!
1 cup cooked chick peas
3 scallion sections, diced
1 chipotle pepper, dried if you can find it or canned, diced
juice of a lime
1/8 tsp ground black pepper
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp cumin
2 cloves garlic, diced
Combine all ingredients in a food processor or Vitamix. Add a little water if you have difficulty mixing or want a different consistency.
