How to make vegan spicy chipotle hummus dip
Chickpeas (Garbanzo Beans)
We will be using canned chickpeas so this recipe comes together very fast. You will need to make sure that you drain and rinse the chickpeas.
Tahini is the secret ingredient to make this recipe so I don't recommend omitting it. You should also make sure to use good quality and pourable tahini as it makes a difference.
Chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
We will be using the chipotle peppers and adobo sauce from a can of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce. You can adjust to taste and add less or more depending on your spice preference.
Freshly squeezed lemon juice gives it a tangy flavor so I don't recommend omitting it. You can also use lime juice if that's what you have.
Olive oil and salt
Adding olive oil makes it very creamy and also makes it easier to work with. Always adjust to taste and then add more salt if needed.
How to make it
- First, rinse and drain the chickpeas and then add all the ingredients into a high speed blender like Vitamix.
- Next, blend until you have the desired consistency. If you like the consistency to be thinner, you can also add a little more water. But, always adjust to taste and serve.
How to use it
There are so many ways to use it but here are some ideas:
- Serve it with pita bread or pita chips.
- Dip veggies, crackers, falafel or top your falafel bowl.
- Use it as a sandwich spread or on bagels.
- After blending, place it in the fridge for an hour so it will be cold and get thicker.
- If the recipe is too thick, you can also add more water.
- Make sure to use a high-speed blender and not a food processor if you want to make it very creamy and smooth.
- Always adjust to taste and then add more salt if needed!
How to store it
You can store it in the fridge, covered, for up to 1 week. It even tastes more delicious as it cools down!
