Hatch Chile Spicy Hummus Dip is one of our best Hatch green chili recipes! Hummus comes alive when paired with Southwestern ingredients. A kick of heat from roasted chopped Hatch Chile Peppers and a shake or two of cumin and Tabasco Sauce.
Warm pita bread may be one of the best simple pleasures in life. Soft, chewy and so wonderful in flavor. And when cut into those fluffy little triangles, so perfect and pretty for dipping.
Thanks to Debra over at Eliot’s Eats and her recent trip to New Mexico for this idea. Her visit to a restaurant who served Green Chile Spicy Hummus had me digging into my freezer for my stash of Hatch Green Chiles, pronto.
Hatch Chile Spicy Hummus Dip
No homemade pita bread for this recipe. I’ve never made homemade pita bread before. It’s on my list of things to accomplish and I can only imagine how wonderful it is. But with a Garbanzo Mediterranean Grill close by, who serves and sells killer pitas, I’m afraid I’ve been too lazy to give it a try.
But making my own spicy hummus has kept me out of the super-slacker category for this one.
I have tinkered and tinkered with getting a hummus recipe just right for my taste and you’ll find the recipe in this post about Ya Ya’s Grilled Pita and Hummus. A great version topped with feta and olives. = YUM.
So next time you’re making homemade hummus for an appetizer, take it up a notch with some spice. This spicy hummus is delicious, with just a kick of heat from the chile, sultry with cumin and a few shakes of Tabasco to keep us honest.
Spicy Hummus Serving Suggestions
Serve with your favorite dippers. I used pita, carrots, slices of cucumber and cornichons. You’ll find this on my Super Bowl buffet next Sunday.
