Chipotle Hummus

Chipotle Hummus

Ready in 1 hour

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."

Are you making this? 
2 15.5-oz cans Garbanzo beans; (chickpeas) drained, with liquid reserved
2 teaspoons Cumin powder
3/4 teaspoon Black Pepper; freshly ground
3/4 teaspoon Salt
1/3 cup Fresh Lemon Juice
1/4 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 teaspoon Fresh garlic; chopped
1/3 cup Tahini; (sesame seed paste)
4 whole Chipotle chiles in adobo sauce; (use more or less to taste)
2 teaspoons Adobo sauce from canned chipotle chiles; (use more or less to taste)

Original recipe makes 4



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.

Add well roasted red peppers reserved in extra virgen olive oil, and fresh parsley or cilantro leaves, to enhance flavor...

Amazing 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.
