This recipe is excellent! Beware of the: 1 canned chipotle pepper in adobo sauce That's 1 pepper, not 2 ... not a can. I placed 2 of those bad boys in 1/2 batch size. Hot, Hot, Hot - but really good. This is good so people will scarf this up at a party ... use the hot peppers to slow them down. :-) I served this with toasted Pita slices - split in 1/2, cut into triangles, brushed with olive oil, granulated garlic, salt and Pepper to taste. Toasted at 450 in the oven until crisp.

This hummus was delicious. Very flavorful with a hint of spicy - not overwhelming. I used the ingredients as listed - except no tahini as my store does not sell it. The only change I made to prep was a tip I read on another hummus recipe to make a creamier mixture: Drain the garbanzo beans and pour them into a bowl of water. With fingers, gently rub the beans to loosen the hull. Hulls will float to the top and you can easily scoop them out. When you've removed them all, drain off the water and use the beans as directed.

Very good recipe, don't make the same newbie mistake I made. I was running back and forth from the kitchen to the computer to read the recipe. In brief glancing, I read it as "1 can chipotle peppers in adobo sauce." Just so nobody else makes the same dumb mistake. It's ONE PEPPER, not ONE CAN of peppers. For what it's worth, it turned out really good, but super spicy. If you like really spice, dump the whole can in, it's super flavorful. I remade the recipe correctly and I love it.
