Green Chile Hummus

green chile hummus

I’ve been enjoying store bought flavored hummus on crackers lately. My friend (the one who introduced me to Los Poblanos) brought some home made hummus to a group meeting once. She told us it was easy to make. So, I decided to use some of the chile I had left over
from our last box to make Green Chile Hummus to serve as a snack to our niece and her husband. I found this basic recipe for hummus at I could not find tahini in our local grocery store, so I consulted several sites and figured out how to make my own. The green chile flavor was a nice compliment to the sesame flavor.

    This sounds great Ruth. I will have to try it. I have just started eating hummus and love it. Was thinking about finding a recipe to make it myself.
