spicy roasted pepper hummus

This is a fiery hummus loaded with roasted jalapeno peppers. 

If you aren’t into heat, then feel free to sub in a roasted mild pepper – like a bell pepper.  When turning down the heat, you may also want to cut back on the honey just a little as it is in the recipe to balance out some of the jalapenos’ heat. 

Conversely if you are a spice fiend, add another jalapeno or another roasted spicy pepper of choice and consider using a little extra honey.
