Roasted Red Bell Pepper Hummus


I got this recipe on the Food Network here. I am reposting because this recipe site is for me and my daughter and it's easy to go to and find recipes that we love rather than hunting on the internet. Loved this... but keep in mind with the jalapeño and the chipotle pepper it's rather spicy... you can use less if desired. Try putting in half the required jalapeño and chipotle then adjust to your taste. You can always add more but once added you can't take it out. This is a great healthy snack served with pita chips or I served it with sliced red and green bell peppers. Enjoy!
