Smokey Hummus

garbanzoThis Hummus is wonderful and smokey! Heidi and I both love this one. It has a little heat but I would say just the right amount. I hope you guys enjoy this one. It is good with peta chips, corn chips, oh just about anything. Take care!

- 2 (15.5 ounce) cans garbanzo beans, drained (see next ingredient)
- 1/2 cup drained garbanzo bean juice
- 1/4 cup tahini (sesame-seed paste)
- 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 canned chipotle pepper in adobo sauce
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1 1/2 teaspoons cumin
- 1 (7 ounce) jar roasted red bell peppers, drained
- 6 oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, drained
- 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- ground black pepper to taste


Place the garbanzo beans, water, tahini, lemon juice, olive oil, chipotle pepper, garlic, and cumin in the bowl of a food processor; blend until smooth. Add the red peppers, sun-dried tomatoes, cilantro, salt, and pepper. Pulse the mixture until the ingredients are coarsely chopped into the hummus base. Transfer to a serving bowl, cover, and chill until ready to serve.
