In our house we cannot get enough hummus, even the little one even loves it! I had bought some chipotle hummus recently and decided I needed to recreate something like it (but better)! I love chipotle flavor. It is bold and smokey with a nice amount of heat. Hummus is super simple to make and don’t let it scare you if you have never tried it. If you like beans and some spice you will love this dip. The most important ingredient needed for the recipe is tahini. Tahini is just a paste made of sesame seeds. To make hummus correctly, you must use it. It‘s a little spendy at $8.00 per jar but it will make lots of hummus for the summer.We paired this spicy hummus with a Lagunitas IPA. This is one of my go-to IPAs. Simple and delicious. The ABV is perfect at 6.2%. So crack open your beer (or beverage of choice) and let‘s make some hummus! Enjoy!
1 16 ounce can of chickpeas (drained / rinsed)
2 chipotle peppers from a can in adobo sauce
1 tablespoon adobo sauce from can of chipotle peppers
1.5 tablespoon fresh squeezed lime juice (please use fresh!)
1/3 cup pure olive oil
1 tablespoon sour cream (full fat)
2 cloves fresh minced garlic or 1 teaspoon minced garlic from jar
1 tablespoon tahini
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 teaspoon cayenne (optional)
Sea salt + Crushed black pepper to taste
Place all ingredients in a food processor. Mix until smooth. Place hummus in the refrigerator until ready to serve. Garnish with some more adobe sauce, red pepper flakes and a lime wedge! Serve with tortilla, pita, or bagel chips. I even enjoy with a ritz cracker. Pair with your favorite IPA. IPA’s and spicy food pair well together.
