I reckon it's about time for another hummus recipe, don't you? This one is fairly simple in preparation, but you'll definitely get your money's worth in flavor. You'll see it paired with wonton crisps, which were suggested to me by my ever-faithful recipe tester, E. It's another one of those things you can literally take in a hundred directions, depending on your spice mixture.
Either way, enjoy both!
Green Chile Hummus
2 (15 oz) cans garbanzo beans
Juice of 2 limes
1/4 c olive oil
2 (4.5 oz) cans chopped green chilies, drained
Salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper to taste
1/2 tsp cumin
Combine beans, lime juice, and oil, and process in a food processor until smooth. Or, if you're like me, and like texture in your hummus, mash beans with a potato masher, and stir in the remaining ingredients. Chill for an hour to allow flavors to make friends.
1/2 pkg wonton wrappers
4 tbsp butter, melted
2 cloves garlic, minced
Lay wrappers on a baking sheet. Brush with garlic butter, top with freshly ground pepper, and bake in a 375 degree oven for 5-6 minutes, until crispy.
