Chipotle Hummus

Not to toot my own horn, but… I’m totally going to toot my horn.

This is hands-down the best hummus I’ve ever had.


Roasted red pepper hummus has always been my go-to but this? This zesty chipotle hummus is a total game changer!

I’m glad my recent chipotle obsession migrated from my bean dip makeover into a big bowl of chickpeas because this is a new staple around here. It makes a fantastically flavorful sandwich spread and is great on veggies and pita chips galore!

Grab a handy dandy jar of chipotle peppers and join me! You know you want to!

Hummus Ingredients

  • chickpeas
  • tahini paste
  • quality extra virgin olive oil
  • canned chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
  • fresh lemon juice
  • garlic
  • salt

For the pretty (and oh so delicious) garnish, top hummus with a drizzle of olive oil, minced chipotle pepper, and paprika.

so… how was it?!

This chipotle hummus was so flipping good! I could legit eat this hummus daily.

As if by magic, the smoky chipotle peppers and adobo sauce give this creamy, dreamy hummus just the kick it needs to be addictively delicious.

The hummus (or yummus as we call it here!) will keep for a few days in your fridge, but you’ll be too busy licking the bowl clean to worry about leftovers!

Next time I’m for sure doubling the batch!

Or maybe I should triple it?


All hummus. ALL. THE. TIME.

  • 1 cup chickpeas
  • 2 TBSP tahini
  • 2 TBSP quality olive oil
  • 1 chipotle pepper (packed in adobo sauce)
  • 1.5 TBSP lemon juice
  • ½ tsp adobo sauce
  • ¼ tsp minced garlic
  • tsp salt


  • ½ chipotle pepper, minced
  • extra virgin olive oil (I used a spicy harissa one!)
  • tsp paprika, sweet or smoked


  • In a food processor or blender, combine chickpeas, chipotle pepper, tahini, adobo sauce.
  • Blend to incorporate.
  • Scrape down the sides and add your garlic, salt, and lemon juice.
  • Blend until deliciously creamy.
  • Dive in with a pita chip for a taste-test and add more of your favorite ingredients if desired [more oil or tahini will thin out the hummus, more chipotle pepper will add heat and smoky flavor and more lemon juice will add some zest to the dip] – the above measurements were my idea of hummus perfection! Love it so!
  • To fancily, top with half of a chopped chipotle pepper, a hearty drizzle of your favorite olive oil [I broke out the harissa-infused evoo for mine! Yum!] and a sprinkling of paprika.


Serve it with… pita chips, fresh pita wedges, and fresh veggies for dunking.
This chipotle hummus also makes a tasty sandwich spread!

    (Are those the tortilla roll chips from Target?!?)

  7. I love anything spicy! Are those tortilla chips in your pic? They look like mini corn tortillas rolled up.

    1. They are! I found them at Target – they’re Archer Farms [their store brand] crunchy tortilla rolls or something like that. LOVE them!
