Smoky, garlicky, earthy, and authentic, this chipotle hummus is ready to enjoy in only five minutes. It’s also gluten-free, vegan, and rich in dietary fiber. 


  • 1 cup cooked chickpeas with 1/4 cup cooking water (or 1 (15-oz) can chickpeas, not drained; keep the chickpea liquid)
  • 1/2 cup finely ground sesame seeds (I used black ones)
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice or lime juice
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 12 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
  • 1 teaspoon adobo sauce
  • Chopped fresh parsley or fresh cilantro, freshly ground black pepper and smoked paprika for garnishing


  1. Place all ingredients except parsley and paprika in a food processor or a blender. Blend until smooth.
  2. Transfer the hummus to a medium bowl, garnish with a little more olive oil if desired. Sprinkle with chopped parsley or fresh cilantro, black pepper, and smoked paprika. Serve chilled or at room temperature. Enjoy!
