Spicy Chipotle Hummus

October 10, 2013

I just love hummus!


Not only is it delicious, it's packed full of healthy omega 3 fatty acids, protein, iron, manganese and amino acids. And the best thing of it all, it's so simple to make!


All you need a food processor, a blending wand or a blender, and the ingredients below and you're good to go!


In this recipe I decided to add a chipotle chilli and a little coriander to give a spicy and little extra Mexican flavor.


Serve with toasted pita bread or whole-wheat tortillas



  • 1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed

  • 2 tbs. tahini

  • 2 tbs. olive oil

  • 3 tbs. lemon or lime juice

  • 1 chipotle chilli, minced

  • 2 garlic cloved, peeled and minced

  • 1/2 cup water

  • salt to taste

  • 4 tbs fresh coriander, finely chopped (optional)


For topping: extra olive oil and paprika




  • Throw all the above ingredients into a bowl (or the food processor) except for the water. Add the water little by little till you get the consistency you desire.

  • Blend the ingredients till smooth.

  • When serving top it off with 2-3 tbs of extra olive oil on top and sprinkle paprika for flavor and colorful presentation.

  • Enjoy!
