A spicy chipotle hummus that everyone will love. Whip it up in under 10 minutes and serve with pita chips or fresh veggies for the perfect party or game day snack.
I’ve been trying to make this recipe for weeks.
In fact, for the past several days I had all the ingredients sitting out on the kitchen counter believing that the inconvenience of the used up counter space would force this hummus to be made. But last week had different plans for me. One by one the kids and I were knocked off our feet by an unrelenting sickness, followed by 4 sleepless nights, ensuing drama from my Airbnb guests, and resulting in your darling vegan becoming completely useless. It was full-on survival mode last week.
But somehow (I’m really not sure how) we made it through the week and over my kid-free weekend I focused on two things: recovery and spicy chipotle hummus.
Homemade vs. Store Bough Hummus
I love hummus and, truth be told, sometimes it’s much easier to pick it up at the store. But there are so many reasons to make your own hummus at home. Homemade hummus is
- Way cheaper
- Limitless with possibilities.
- Completely, totally, and ridiculously easy to make!
Why have I been buying store-bought all this time??
Recommended Ingredients & Equipment
Homemade hummus is also highly versatile. This recipe uses chipotle peppers for a spicy and smoky dip that you’re going to love. But if you’re looking for a more traditional hummus, make sure to try this Roasted Garlic Hummus.
Here is everything you need.
