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.

I'm married and am very blessed to be the mother of a gorgeous little 2 year old named Mac. I live in good ol' North Dakota! I love to do many things. Laugh, love, write and cook. Mostly, I like to enjoy life to the fullest. That's probably why I love cooking so much. There is no right or wrong way of doing it. My day job keeps me very busy but its also extremely rewarding. I work for a company called Pride Inc. We serve individuals with developmental disabilities. So most of the people on my caseload are like my family. For me, I learned from my grandma that cooking brought people together. I associated it with happiness, love and togetherness and who doesn't want those things in life! So I've always tried to continue that in my own life with my own family. Nothing brings people together like a good meal. And a few good laughs!
