Spicy Hummus Dip

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Jan in Lanark

This is one of my favorite appetizers- easy and inexpensive. A variation of a recipe from a very old Canadian Living. If you don't like spicy, you can omit the chipotle peppers and add fresh herbs, especially dill, right into the dip. I make homemade pita chips for this, but any type of cracker works as well.
