1 15-oz can garbanzo beans, drained
1/4 cup water
2 Tbsp. tahini
1/4 cup lime juice
3 Tbsp. olive oil
1/3 cup chopped cilantro
1 canned chipotle pepper in adobo sauce (you can find it in the Hispanic food aisle of your local supermarket)
salt and pepper, to taste
In a blender or food processor, combine the garbanzo beans, water,
, lime juice, and olive oil. Blend for 2 minutes on low until smooth.
Add the cilantro and chipotle pepper (if you don’t want your hummus to be too spicy, just add half the pepper). Blend until smooth.
Mix in the salt and pepper, to taste, and serve with your favorite tortilla chips or veggies!
