I had a lime that needed to get used and I thought it would make a great addition to a hummus dip. I was unsure of what other flavorings to add so I decided to do a quick Google search and came across a recipe that sounded interesting. It is a Chipotle Lime Hummus, but I didn’t have any chipotle seasonings so I adapted the recipe a bit and turned this hummus into Chile Lime Hummus.
This recipe is adapted from here:
- 1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
- 1 clove of garlic
- 5 drops Tabasco sauce
- juice from 1 lime
- 1/2 tsp dried chile powder
- 1/4 cup water
- 1 tsp tahini
- 1 tsp olive oil
- salt and pepper to taste
- In a food processor, combine chickpeas, garlic, Tabasco sauce, lime juice, chile powder, and water.
- Blend to form a puree, scraping down the sides as needed.
- When a paste has formed, add the tahini, olive oil, salt and pepper.
- Blend until smooth and creamy and adjust seasonings if necessary.
So far I have enjoyed dipping veggies in this hummus and spreading the hummus on a corn tortilla with black beans and salsa to make a wrap. Both ways were delicious. This hummus would also be great to replace sauce for pizza, to top salads, or pretty much any other way you enjoy hummus!
