Chipotle and Lime Hummus recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen

It is a well-documented fact that I have a thing for chipotle peppers. That smoky spicy heat is completely irresistible. When I ran across a recipe for a chipotle hummus last week, I knew I needed to make it as soon as I had the chance.

If you are a fan of chipotle and lime flavors, this hummus needs to be in your house very soon! Smoky, tangy, slightly spicy, this hummus is going to be seen frequently in our future.

      Sounds like I need to get my hands on some of that! I bet it would be awesome in a Mexican spice mix. Thanks for the tip!
