Minimal chopping? Ingredients that I already had on hand? Throw everything in a blender and that’s it? A unique, spicy hummus? Sign me up. No lie. This took less than 5 minutes to make. And, to quote the writer of this recipe, it’s “Oh so good.” (Honestly, I didn’t think Mr. Food was still around. I remember watching him on the noontime news, in the days before the Food Channel and cable tv, when I was home sick from school…)

By the way, not sure what to do with the leftover adobo chilies that came in the can? Throw in a ziploc bag, flatten it out and place in the freezer. When frozen the chilies are easy to break apart to chop up to throw in your chili.
