Southwestern Chickpea Dip
Makes 2 cups
This flavorful dip made with chickpeas is a nice variation on traditional hummus. The spicy and tangy taste makes it a perfect appetizer before a southwestern meal. Serve it with tortilla chips or veggies.
2 cups chick peas
2 garlic cloves minced
½ cup cilantro, washed and chopped
Juice from 2 limes
1 chipotle pepper
¼ cup canola oil
1 teaspoon salt
4 teaspoons water
In a food processor or blender fitted with a steel blade, puree all of the ingredients until smooth. Gradually add a few teaspoons of water as you puree and stop to scrape the bowl a few times. This process should take up to five minutes to get a really smooth consistency.
