Hatch Chile Hummus

We had some Hatch Chile's left and I wanted to try them in a humus. So here's the result!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup garbanzo beans (fresh or canned)
  • 1/3 cup tahini
  • 1/8 cup mayonnaise or Greek yogurt
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 Hatch chile (roasted & skinned, I kept the seeds in there)
  • 1 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper (plus sprinkles for top)
  • You will need a food processor or a potato masher

Instructions

  1. If you are using dry beans, prepare them by boiling until semi soft (about an hour), remember to continue to re-add water as it boils down.
  2. In the food processor add all the ingredients together and process them.
  3. Remove from processor, place in a bowl (you may have to smash the few remaining beans).
  4. Sprinkle top with cayenne pepper.
  5. Serve with pita bread, pretzels or use as a spread.

  • 1/3 cup tahini
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • You will need a food processor or potato masher.

Instructions

  1. Add all the ingredients into the food processor and process them.
  2. Place in a bowl and serve with a cracker chip or use on a pastry puff as a spread.
