Roasted Red Pepper Hummus


 












I received a request today for a Red Pepper Hummus recipe.  To be honest, I haven't eaten much hummus and certainly never made it so this would be something new to try.  As soon as I saw Red Pepper, I  knew I'd be a fan.  I checked out a few different recipes and this one from Guy Fieri looked the best.  Turns out I made a great choice, this hummus is unbelievable and simple to make!  Thanks for the request Ricky, give it a try and I promise you'll like it.

This sounds so good. Where do you get "chipotle pepper and adobe sauce" and "6 oz roasted red pepper?" Is this in a jar?

I'm sorry, it's actually Chipotle peppers IN adobe sauce. Usually found in Mexican isle, brand is La Costena, 7oz can. The sauce is spicy, I rinse a pepper or two, deseed and chop. Also add some of the sauce. I got roasted red peppers in a 12oz jar, there were two in the jar so I used one of them. Chopped it up and added to food processor. It's so easy. I'm eating some right now, enjoy!
