There’s no such thing as too spicy right? This hummus has quite a kick and comes together in about 5 minutes. It is really a flavor experience because the first thing you taste is the coolness of the cilantro, and the green-ness of the raw jalapeño. But then the smoky warm chipotle flavor comes through at the end with some heat! Call me crazy but I think this would be good with cinnamon pita chips.
Cilantro Jalapeño Chipotle Hummus
Makes about 1.5 cups
1 can chickpeas, rinsed
1 cup tahini
Juice of 1 lemon
3 cloves garlic
1 handful cilantro, destemmed (about 1/2 cup or half a bunch)
1 large jalapeño, destemmed
1 tsp chipotle powder
Salt to taste
Throw everything in the blender and blend until smooth, about 4 minutes. Garnish with a cilantro leaf and a pinch of chipotle powder. Tastes even better the next day.
