I am a recent hummus convert and have become completely obsessed with the stuff in the last few years. This Roasted Poblano Sweet Corn Hummus is one of my favorite new flavors! I think part of the reason why I was so quick to jump on the hummus bandwagon was that I started eating it by making my own and not eating the ones you can get in the store. I knew it would be easy to make (and it soooooo is!) and homemade always tastes a million times better. Plus! You can experiment with flavors and make it your own.
It only takes a few minutes to make Roasted Poblano Sweet Corn Hummus. Just throw all the ingredients in a food processor, blend, and you are good to go! If you do not have a food processor, you need one! I have two and I use them alllllll the time. They can do so many things: shredding, slicing, blending, etc. We buy brick cheese and it is shredded in seconds, I use them to make all my sauces and salsas, grind cookies for crusts, the list goes on and on. This affiliate link is for a food processor very similar to the one that I have. I could not live without mine!
I have noticed that as this hummus sits, the heat does pick up just a little bit as the flavors continue to blend together but it is nothing too drastic. This recipe is designed for a very mild heat, almost none at all really since Poblanos are so mild, so if you want it spicy just add some more chiles, hot sauce, or a dash of cayenne pepper.
Hummus is fantastic because it is healthy and can be used in so many ways. Beyond as a dip for pita and veggies, you can use it on sandwiches in place of mayo or other condiments, mixed with some extra citrus/vinegar/oil as a salad dressing, or even on a burger. My hubby loves to put hummus on his bagel in addition to the cream cheese. How do you like to eat your hummus?
