Chipotle and Sweet Pepper Hummus

by Heidi @ Food Doodles on July 8, 2011

Just a quick post today, although I’m sure I’ll ramble on for a minute or two anyways 😀

Yesterday was filled with a bunch of kitchen fails.  Usually even if I make something that doesn’t taste very good I still eat it because I don’t want to waste the ingredients or even the time spent on it.  Or I try to make it into something else.  I just can’t stand to throw something away.  But it just was not possible with 3 separate things yesterday.  Thank goodness I made small batches of everything, but it still bothers me.  Oh well I guess, now I know.  I’m feeling much better about today.  I had an amazing salad for lunch that I can’t wait to share(and eat again tomorrow!) and I can’t wait to get back into the kitchen later if I have any time left.

Unfortunately the hubby had two of his wisdom teeth removed this morning which is also why I don’t want to spend too long on my post today.  And even if he did enjoy spicy foods I’m pretty sure he wont be enjoying any of this or anything else I make today.  On a regular every day basis I don’t care too much about spicy foods.  I don’t load up on hot sauce or cayenne powder, but once in a while I want something hot.  And I think I made my batch of hummus a little too hot.  I’ve been sampling it with a little baby spoon and even that much makes me feel like I can breathe fire, in a good way, for me at least.  So I’ve written a lesser amount into the recipe, and if you know your tolerance for heat you can adjust it accordingly.

I love hummus, and nearly every kind too. In the summer months, I like to throw basil in mine. While I love Sabre hummus, homemade is soo much cheaper, and easy to make too!

I love chipotle flavor so I’m sure I’d love this hummus.

This hummus looks absolutely amazing. I’d have never thought of such an ingenious combination – chipotle? sweet peppers? But come to think about it, what could taste better than all the ingredients on your list put together? I’m making it tomorrow, for sure, just a perfect light supper for a tired pair coming back home from a hike in the Arizona heat. Can’t wait!

I always say the only thing better than hummus is spicy hummus. Thanks for the recipe!

Two of the best things on earth, hummus and chipotles. Loving your recipe! Hope your hubby feels better soon.

I love making hummus from scratch! I’ve had a few occasions when I’ve totally botched the recipe by trying to add too many flavors to it, but most times, it’s always better than anything store-bought. I love the addition of a spicy kick – will have to try it out!

This hummus is really going to taste great! I am drooling! I see that you have a lovely collection of recipes!! Shall come back very soon…

Another excellent hummus option I must try! I love the sound of this spicy variation.

I love hummus in a any form and this one looks great! Thanks for sharing!

Hi, Heidi, as planned I’ve made the hummus this afternoon and just had to leave you a quick note. It’s unbelievably good. I want to put it on everything – is this a bad thing? Thanks for the recipe.

Thanks so much for the feedback Gosia! I’m glad you’re enjoying it 😀
