Hummus… A very versatile snack!

20130902-120842.jpgHummus is truly a family favorite! With seemingly limitless favor combinations, hummus is perfect for a packed lunch with carrots and celery or as a fun addition to a cheese board at a swanky dinner party. Possibilities galore!

I opted for smokey heat with chipotle spice and cilantro today.

Here’s what you’ll need:

16 ounces of dried garbanzo or white beans

2 whole cloves of garlic

2 tablespoons of tahini

1/2 to 1 tablespoon of crushed chipotle peppers (I used Smokey Chipotle and Paprika Spice)

1 medium lime

2 tablespoons of fresh rough chopped cilantro

1/2 cup of good olive oil

salt and pepper to taste

Follow directions on package to hydrate beans.  Rinse and drain.

Add to food processor.  Pulse twice to roughly chop beans.

Add tahini, garlic, chipotle seasoning and and lime juice.  Pulse.

Through the opening in the top pf the processor slowly add olive oil while setting speed to 2 or medium.  Continue until desired texture.

Salt and pepper to taste.
