Spicy Chipotle Hummus; creamy chickpea hummus packing lots of heat! Easy dip recipe for any season! Enjoy this protein packed snack with crackers or veggies! Such a great appetizer or snack!
Spicy anything wins my heart, but this spicy chipotle hummus just takes it to an entire new level.
Usually Wednesdays are my DIY or house renovation update days, but I decided to spice it up – literally – and do another recipe post.
I feel like every good vegan blog needs at least one hummus recipe.. considering it is a staple in a vegans diet usually, and my blog here is lacking a good hummus recipe.
One thing you all should know about me is spicy/hot foods make my world go round. There is just something about a good hot sauce that warms my taste buds just right. I love adding hot sauce or cayenne to literally all my meals. This tends to come out a lot in my recipes here on my blog too – if you haven’t noticed yet.
So this hummus is my favourite go to when it comes to snacks. I recently was given a food processor as a gift, so I have been experimenting with all types of foods.. but I have literally made this hummus 10x more then anything else with my food processor.
Why? Hummus is such a great alternative to any dairy or non vegan spread. I love using in place of mayo or even as a creamy base to a pasta dish.. why not right?!
I have the 9 cup Kitchen Aid Food Processor. I love it. The majority of my kitchen appliances are Kitchen Aid because I just trust the quality.
My dad would only buy Kitchen Aid appliances when I was growing up and he STILL uses the same appliances today… and I’m old – a whole 25 years old ..
Spicy Chipotle Hummus Ingredients:
- can of chickpeas
- olive oil
- lemon juice
- cumin pepper
- chipotle peppers packed in adobo sauce
- pink salt
Anyways, getting back on track with this hummus.
This hummus can be customized to your taste by adding or subtracting some spices, herbs lemons/limes… or you can pull a Nikki and dump more hot sauce in there to really set your mouth on fire… but for now I’m going to stick with this recipe!
