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.
