Peanut butter hummus

I get to listen to All Things Considered on my commute. This episode that featured Nigella Lawson stuck with me for the unusual hummus recipe.  I had chick peas and I had peanut butter and I set out to combine.

You can find the original recipe here

 My version goes something like this.The heat of the Chipotle chilies perfectly balanced the slight sweetness of the peanut butter.

1 can chick peas (drained and rinsed)
3 -4 tbsp peanut butter
1 lime juiced
1 tsp cumin
2 Chipotle chilies in Adobo sauce
salt to taste.

Process  the chikcpeas, peanut butter, cumin  and Chipotle chilies to a fairly smooth paste. Add salt and lime juice to taste.
