David won’t admit it, but this chipotle-lime hummus has changed his opinion of hummus. 

I’ve been on a huge hummus kick lately, trying out lots of new hummus recipes, and even sharing a couple along the way. I have been hanging on to this recipe for a little while, because I didn’t want you to think I was completely obsessed with hummus. I don’t think it is time to join the Hummus Anonymous Group yet, but hold that thought.

This flavorful recipe is a great twist on classic hummus. Creamy chickpeas with Mexican spices and the warm soft smoky heat of adobo and chipotle chilies offset with a light refreshing zing of lime. This chipotle-lime hummus would be great for parties or small gatherings. It’s like a Mexican fiesta inside your mouth!

Let me share this recipe with you and perhaps you will understand why David changed his opinion of hummus:
