Chipotle-Peanut Butter Hummus

Written by Joy Zacharia on April 13, 2012

Look for chipotle peppers in adobo sauce in the Latin food section of your supermarket or in Mexican markets. They’re a little spicy but pack a punch of smoky flavor. Spread hummus in a turkey sandwich, serve with raw or steamed veggies, or pair with fruit and crackers.

Makes about 12 servings


  • 1 (19-ounce) can chickpeas, drained
  • 2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
  • 1 teaspoon grated lime rind (rind of 1 lime)
  • ¼ cup fresh lime juice (2 large limes)
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 large garlic clove, peeled
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3 tablespoons water


Place all ingredients in the bowl of a food processor. Process until smooth, stopping to scrape down sides.
