Chipotle Hummus

Chipotle Hummus makes a definite statement with its bold flavor.

1  basic {hummus} recipe, prepared without the salt
1/2  dry chipotle pepper
1/4 teaspoon oregano
1/4 teaspoon ground coriander
1 tablespoon chopped yellow onion
 {salt} to taste
Toast the chipotle pepper and the oregano. Toasting releases the perfume of the chipotle and spices, rendering a wonderful bouquet of flavors. Remove the seeds and veins and break up the dry chipotle pepper. Add desired amount of hummus and blend thoroughly. Since chipotles are hot, try a small amount and then add to desired taste. Blend in the oregano, coriander, onion, and salt.

Pour mixture into a serving dish. Allow mixture to rest for 1-2 hours for flavors to thoroughly blend.
