Spicy Roasted Garlic Red Pepper Hummus

I have recently been going through a hummus craze, so I thought that I may as well try to make it myself if I’m going to be guzzling it by the bowlful. Ok, it hasn’t gotten that bad, but I have made a serious investment in pita chips. Ingredients:
  • 1 can of chickpeas (15oz) drained (about 2 cups)
  • 1 roasted red pepper
  • 1 jalapeño, chopped and seeded
  • 4 cloves of roasted garlic
  • 2 tbsp lemon or lime juice
  • ½ cup sesame seeds
  • dash of salt
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp hot sauce
hummus2 Directions:
  1. Blend all ingredients in food processor until smooth. Seriously. It’s that easy.
Serve with pita chips, veggies, or spread on a sandwich. This recipe is SPICY, because I’m an insane person, who apparently likes my sinuses to be cleared while snacking. If you want less of a kick, then take out the jalapeño, or substitute plain water for the hot sauce.
