Smoky spicy flavored chipotles, mixed with some peanut butter and roasted red peppers, makes this hummus come out super creamy and is jam packed with flavor. The cilantro cools it down a bit and adds some pretty flecks of green, totally perfect for serving at your next gathering with loads of veggies and crackers.
