Chipotle and Toasted Walnut Hummus

Tammy Brownlow


I decided to make a hummus to snack on this evening, but I was wanting something different. I started looking around and found some chipotle peppers and for some reason toasted walnuts popped into my head for some crunch and flavor. With as rich as hummus can be I thought some fresh herbs would be nice. It turned out really good. So I thought I would share it with you. I hope you give it a try - I think it would be great as a dip, or spread for sandwiches.
