Easy, flavorful chipotle pumpkin hummus that takes just minutes to make. Smoky, a little spicy, and perfect for fall entertaining.


  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 (15-oz) can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 cup pure pumpkin purée (not pumpkin pie mix)
  • 1/4 cup tahini paste
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 chipotle chili (from can of chipotles in adobo)
  • 12 tablespoons adobo sauce (from can of chipotles in adobo, see notes)
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup
  • optional for serving: extra virgin olive oil, smoked paprika, and pumpkin seeds


  1. Add the garlic clove to a food processor and process until minced.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients and process until smooth and creamy. You may have to stop the processor a few times to scrape down the sides.
  3. If the hummus seems too thick, add water or extra virgin olive oil, 1 tablespoon at a time and process again. A few tablespoons should do the trick.
  4. Season with more salt, if needed, and transfer to an airtight container or a serving bowl if serving immediately.
  5. Garnish with optional drizzle of extra virgin olive oil, a sprinkle of smoked paprika, and pumpkin seeds.


If you want the hummus extra smoky, use 2 tablespoons of adobo sauce. For less intense flavor, stick to 1 tablespoon.
