Chipotle Hummus

Posted on June 29, 2017 by Bickford Flavors

Add a little (or a lot) of "bite" to your bite with this twist on traditional hummus, featuring Bickford Chipotle flavor.


  • 2 cups cooked and drained chickpeas (or one 15 oz. can, drained)
  • 3 TBSP extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp Bickford Chipotle flavor (to taste)
  • 3-5 TBSP tahini (sesame paste)
  • 1 ½ TBSP lemon juice
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 1 tsp salt
  • Optional garnish (suggested options: fresh sprigs of parsley, swirl of adobo sauce, sprinkled paprika or chipotle powder, whole chickpeas, sesame or olive oil)


  1. Drain and rinse chickpeas.
  2. Add all ingredients (except garnish) to blender or food processor. Blend until smooth (one or two minutes), scraping sides as needed.
  3. Add additional Bickford Chipotle flavor, garlic, tahini, or salt to your taste. If hummus seems to stiff, add a little more lemon juice and/or olive oil and blend.
  4. Transfer to serving bowl and add garnish, if desired. Serve with pita chips, pita wedges, fresh veggies, or tortilla chips.
