Chipotle Hummus


Traditional hummus gets a twist with some heat in this chipotle hummus recipe! Chipotle adds a smoky taste while cilantro refreshens and enhances all the ingredients for a fantastic flavor combination. Try some with fresh, chopped veggies or pita chips.


  • 1 15 oz. can chickpeas or garbanzo beans
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic or 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon canned chipotle chilies, diced
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro leaves
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons tahini


Drain chickpeas and set aside liquid from can. In a blender or food processor combine all remainging ingredients. Add 1/4 cup of liquid from chickpeas. Blend for 3-5 minutes on low until thoroughly mixed and smooth.

Place in serving bowl, and create a shallow well in the center of the hummus. Add a small amount (1-2 tablespoons) of olive oil in the well. Serve immediately with fresh, chopped veggies or pita, or cover and refrigerate.
