Chicken & Red Pepper Hummus Wrap

Roasted red pepper hummus? There’s an app for that. No, really. And it makes a great lunch!

I got this great recipe from my new favorite app, epicurious, which has a great recipe database. This recipe originally comes from Bon Apetit in 1994 (how great is that?? I would never have found that on my own! Oh technology…), and I adjusted it just a little.

Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

  • 1 whole roasted red bell pepper
  • 1 15 oz. can garbanzo beans (chickpeas), drained
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/3 c. lemon juice
  • 1/3 c. tahini
  • salt and pepper to taste

-Start with one of these beauties (they taste so much better if you roast them yourself).

-In a food processor, blend the beans, garlic, lemon juice, and tahini until smooth.

-Add a drizzle of olive oil and the roasted pepper. Blend again until smooth.

-Pour into a container and fold in salt and pepper to taste with a spatula.

That’s it for the hummus! It is quite tasty on it’s own, it makes regular hummus seem boring!

Chicken & Red Pepper Hummus Wrap

  • 1 roasted chicken breast
  • 1 roasted red bell pepper
  • 1/4 c. red bell pepper hummus
  • 2 t. creme fraiche or sour cream
  • 2 tortillas

-Slice the chicken breast into small pieces.

-Take one of the tortillas and spread half of the hummus and half of the creme fraiche on it.

-Add half of the chicken breast slices.

-Slice the red pepper thinly and add some of the red pepper slices.

-Roll up and cut in half.

Did I mention that I’m loving spring break?

    So I finally took inspiration from your hummus and I made spinach and artichoke hummus today. It’s so good! I used your base recipe but instead of red peppers I used 1/4 cup spinach and 2 artichoke hearts. I needed about a 1/3 cup of olive oil (more than i expected) but it’s so good! A little extra paprika on top and baby carrots. Perf. Thanks for the ideas LoPro

      Awesome, I’m glad! Yeah the amount of oil you need just depends on the ingredients you add I think. Glad it worked out!
