Recipe - Mexican Hummus

A few weeks ago, I found the best pin ever for hummus.  I thought it was so interesting...definitely inspired me to "step outside the hummus box" and see what I could create!

A few nights later, I had nothing but a can of chickpeas to make for a Mexican side.  I wrangled up a few things in my pantry and made a great Mexican hummus.  I thought I'd share it with y'all today!

Mexican Hummus


1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1/4 cup cilantro
1 can Rotel, drained well
1/3 cup peanut butter
1 clove garlic, chopped
2 tablespoons olive oil (plus more for topping)
1 tsp red pepper flakes
1 lime, juiced


Place everything in a blender and puree.  Top with a little bit of olive oil, cilantro, and crushed red pepper.  Serve with tortilla chips.
