It will come as no surprise that I’ve added chipotle to the classic hummus. I love the smoky, spicy chipotle pepper. My chipotle chicken salad is a perennial favourite. Since I really enjoy hummus I thought why not give it a whirl (literally, in the food processor) with some spicy goodness!
I basically used my classic hummus recipe and added a couple chopped chipotle peppers and a tablespoon of adobe sauce.
I started by blitzing 3 garlic cloves in the food processor.
Then added the chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice and sea salt.
Next, I chopped up the chipotle peppers. Look at all the seeds! That’s what brings the heat, people:)
I used a baby carrot to test out the seasonings.
Then I had a little kitchen mishap. I dropped the lid to my food processor on the floor which not only scared the crap out of Louis, who was innocently lounging nearby, but scared the crap out of me as well thinking that it would render my appliance useless. You see the lid has to clip in for the unit to turn on. A few pieces chipped off but thankfully it still works and I was back to devouring my spicy hummus;) Luckily, it wasn’t as bad as this little accident I had awhile back.
In addition to the carrots I munched on some spelt flat bread I picked up when I was at the Bulk Barn. I was just OK, so I won’t bother giving out the info on them.
If you are looking for a way to mix things up a bit in the hummus department you should totally give this rendition a try.
