White Bean Chipotle Hummus
Happy Friday! You guys have got to try my newest hummus creation, White Bean Chipotle Hummus. It is a winner, for sure- smooth, creamy and guilt-free with the perfect kick of spice!
I pretty much always have some type of hummus in the fridge and I typically choose to whip up my own. It’s so quick and easy, there’s really no excuse not to enjoy homemade hummus. I like making up a batch, over the weekend, to use throughout the week for snacks, sandwich spread and salad topping (instead of dressing).
I will tell you, this white bean chipotle hummus didn’t last a full week in this household. Luckily, the ingredient list is clean and the hummus is healthy. No shame, if you find yourself doing a little midnight snacking!
- 1 15 oz. can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
- 1-3 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, more or less, depending on how much spice you like
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 2 tablespoons water, more or less for desired consistency
- 1 teaspoon garlic salt or 2 cloves fresh garlic
- 1 teaspoon cumin
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- salt and pepper to taste
- For the topping:
- 1/2 chipotle pepper in adobo sauce, minced
- drizzle of olive oil
- sprinkle of paprika
Combine all ingredients in the bowl of a food processor. Add more water for desired consistency. Transfer to serving bowl, add the topping (if desired) and enjoy!
Nutritional information and serving size is calculated without topping.
Hummus is a favorite of mine- I use it as a spread, salad topping and veggie or chip dip. It’s even great as a baked potato topping and much healthier than butter or sour cream! Try some of my other hummus recipes!
Roasted Golden Beet Hummus (also super yummy with regular red beets)
