A Taste of the Season - Chipotle Hummus

The perfect autumn appetizer or game day dip. Wonderfully balanced with the spicy flavor of chipotle, a hint of sweetness from maple syrup and the subtle addition of pureed pumpkin and turmeric. So healthy and delicious, this dip is also great smeared on a tortilla for a veggie wrap or served with cut veggies and crackers. Top with candied pumpkin seeds to take this to the next level!

1 - 14 oz can chickpeas, drained & rinsed

1/4 cup tahini

1/4 cup pumpkin puree

1/2 chipotle pepper

1 tbsp adobo sauce from the can of chipotles

1/2 tsp garlic granules or powder

2 tsp maple syrup

1 tbsp fresh lemon juice

1/4 tsp turmeric

1/4 tsp sweet or smoked paprika

Himalayan salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste

water as needed to blend (I used about 1/4 cup)

Optional toppings:

candied or roasted pumpkin seeds, a drizzle of olive oil, roasted chickpeas

Place all ingredients into a high speed blender and puree until totally smooth, stopping to scrape down the sides often. Add in cold water, a little at a time until you reach your desired consistency.
