Smoky Black Bean Hummus

Black Bean Hummus

If you invite me to a party, it’s pretty likely that I’m going to show up with black bean hummus. Black bean hummus is the perfect snack or appetizer for the adventurous and not-so-adventurous. The subtle smokiness from the chipotle peppers provides just the right amount of flare. I love to dip veggies and chips into black bean hummus. I am even known to toss it into my salads or spread black bean hummus onto my wraps. It is great for lunch, dinner, appetizers and snacks!
