Chipotle Peanut Butter Hummus


Chipotle Peanut Butter Hummus, originally uploaded by Vegan Year.

Oh, yum! Smokey heat added to hummus which is already enhanced by Peanut Butter. Try as a dip for raw veggies, with nacho chips, on sandwiches or burgers, or as I did one lunchtime as a dollop over rice! The rice as pictured is "Cilantro Rice" - brown basmati cooked in vegetable stock them tossed with chopped cilantro once done. Super quick and easy and YUM!!
If you don’t know (have you been living on the moon??) Chipotle chiles are smoke dried jalapenos, sold either dried, or canned in a spicy adobo sauce. You want the canned kind here please, and don’t bother scraping off the sauce, as that is part of what makes this so yum.
If you like more heat, add more chipotles or leave the seeds in.

When I first read the blog title, I had my doubts. Now I'm convinced, especially since there's cilantro rice involved!
