Chipotle-Lime Hummus

David will not admit it, but this chipotle-lime hummus has changed his opinion of hummus. Although he says he doesn’t like hummus, HE DOES!

I have been hanging on to this recipe for a little while because I have been on a huge hummus kick lately but I didn’t want you to think I was completely obsessed with hummus.

I have been trying a lot of hummus recipes lately, but it may not be time to join the Hummus Anonymous Group just 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!
