I felt skeptical, but now that I’ve made it…its wonderful!
Really tasty. I doubled the recipe and added extra chipotle and coriander made a nice change from traditional hummus.
How long does the bean dip last in the fridge?
I’m confused about the canned chipotle pepper in sauce. I’ve used this product before. Since the recipe calls for 1 teaspoon do you just cut a small piece off of a pepper and just take whatever sauce is on it?
I love all hummus and I LOVE tis recipe. Everyplace I take it it is a huge hit. I like spicy so I add more Chipotle pepper than called for and a little bit of the adobo sauce. I also add more than a 1 inch think wedge of onion (probably because I have no idea what 1 inch piece looks like!). This is a great recipe for appetizers, parties, potlucks etc. And make sure to add the cilantro – that makes it pop!
How would you adjust this recipe if you did not want it to be spicy?
I would make a different recipe. Chipotles are hot. If you can’t do spicy, you probably shouldn’t even bother.
Less Chipotle pepper. Maybe just a a wee touch of the adobo sauce for flavor. I’m the opposite, I always add more chipotle than in recipe. Every time I make this it is a hit!!
