  1. Place 3 cups chickpeas, 1/2 cup tahini, 2 chopped garlic cloves, 4 Tbsp lemon juice, 1 chipotle pepper, and ½ tsp of salt into the bowl of a food processor.

  2. Pulse a few times to combine, then run the processor while adding 1/2 cup water, one Tbsp at a time, until the hummus reaches a desired consistency.

  3. You may need to stop the processor and scrape the sides from time to time.
  4. Taste the hummus, and add a bit more salt if needed, and an extra chipotle pepper (or just a spoonful of adobo saucif you’d like more heat. Remember that the flavours tend to develop over time, so tread carefully.
  5. Transfer your hummus to an airtight container and store in the fridge for up to one week.
