Cilantro Chipotle Hummus

This 5 ingredient hummus is fat-free and flavor packed. It would be a great addition to a summer cocktail party with the girls. Serve with toasted flour tortilla chips or pita chips. I think a light summer cocktail of sparkling pink lemonade or Prosecco would go nicely.
My recipe was inspired by the Cilantro Jalapeño hummus at Pita Jungle in Mesa, Arizona. Hummus is a great snack food in every form but I wanted a fat-free version. The cilantro gives this hummus moisture and a smooth texture without having to add tahini or olive oil. The chipotle gives it mild heat and smokey flavor. Feel free to add more chipotle if you want to turn up the heat. I used canned low sodium chickpeas but freshly boiled chickpeas would be even more delicious.
