A modification of the traditional hummus recipe from the Grit Restaurant Cookbook (one of my all-time favorite cookbooks!).
"Perfect amount of heat! The only changes that I made are
1. I keep my sesame seeds in the freezer and make tahini as needed.
2. I roast or saute the garlic (double or three times the amount called for in any recipe) and that tames the bite that garlic has in leftovers. I prefer to use raw garlic in a recipe, only if it is to be consumed within a couple of hours."

Top-ranked recipe named "Chipotle Hummus"
Puree all ingredients except bean liquid in a food processor. Gradually add the minimum amount of chickpea liquid required to give the mixture a thick, creamy, smooth consistency. Blend until all graininess is gone. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour.
Note: Using 4 chiles makes this hummus mildly spicy.
The perfect snack to have on hand in the fridge - serve with pita chips, bagel chips, or regular pita bread. This is a great addition to a potluck, and travels well for picnics and car trips. Makes good sandwiches too - with cucumbers, lettuce (or sprouts), tomatoes, and red onions.

jmarmyboy1 1 year agoAmazing level of balanced heat for those fearful of a product that is too spicy. I would suggest to save money, cook your own beans, for one cup of beans four cups of water, 3 tbsp of salt and three whole garlic cloves. Cookbtill soft, drain and reserve liquid just the same and follow recipe directions.
