I love hummus. I could eat it every day. When I do eat it, I enter into a gluttonous rampage and eat the entire tub in one sitting then silently weep, wishing I had more.
When developing this recipe I thought about the types of humus I like most. I love spicy, I love garlic, and I would love one made with a hopped-up IPA. I started searching through my fridge for ingredients that could make this happen. Chipotle in adobo sauce, done! Bear Republic Brewing Company Racer 5, most certainly! Garlic, it would be an abomination not to! So here it is, ChipotIPA Humus.
4 cloves of garlic
2-3 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce (2 for mild, 3 for hot)
30 oz (2 cans) of garbanzo beans, rinsed and skinned (makes for creamier texture)
1 t cumin, toasted & ground
1/2 C tahini
6 oz Bear Republic Racer 5
1-2 lemons, juiced (about 3Tbs.)
1 t salt, more if needed
Toss garlic into a food processor and pulse until diced. Add the chipotle peppers into the mix and pulse some more. Next add the rest of the ingredients and process for about 2 minutes, scraping down the bowl intermittently. Continue processing until you achieve your desired texture. Add more salt if needed.
