Chipotle Hummus
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 2-1/2 cups
  • 1-3/4 cups cooked garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/4 cup sesame tahini (I prefer Ziyad brand, but any will do.)
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 3 or 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 chipotle pepper in adobo
  • 1 teaspoon adobo sauce, or to taste (optional)
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  1. In the bowl of the food processor, add the beans, tahini, lemon juice, and garlic. Process for a few seconds to get the mixture started, then add the chipotle pepper and adobo sauce (optional). While the processor runs, begin drizzling in the olive oil, starting with 2 tablespoons, adding more as necessary to create a smooth paste. Process about 3 to 5 minutes for best texture.

Recipe Notes:

The flavor is best with garbanzo beans cooked at home, but you can use a 15-ounce (425 g) can of garbanzo beans in a pinch.
