Chipotle Hummus


  • 1 can garbanzo beans drained
  • 1 chipotle pepper from chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
  • 2 tablespoons tahini
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon adobo sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt more to taste
  • paprika to sprinkle on top


  • In a large mixing bowl (if using a food processor), add the garbanzo beans, chipotle, tahini, olive oil, and adobo sauce. Pulse blend using a food processor until smooth. (if using a blender, simply place the ingredients into the blender). 
  • Add the lemon juice, minced garlic, and salt. Stir to combine. 
  • Taste the hummus and adjust as needed to preferred flavor. If adding more chipotle, tahini, or garlic another round of blending is in order to smooth the hummus. 
  • Transfer the hummus to a serving bowl and sprinkle with oil and/or paprika for color (or additional chopped chipotle pepper if you prefer a spicier/smokier hummus).
