Smoky Chipotle Hummus

Made  times

"Don't spend your good money on tiny containers of store-bought hummus! Make your own! This recipe is a fun twist on traditional hummus recipes. The chipotle pepper and cumin lend a bit of heat and smokiness, while the cilantro brightens the flavor. Perfect for entertaining a crowd! Serve with pita chips and fresh vegetables."

The flavor was pretty good, but the consistency was much too watery. If I make this again I would add more garlic and a lot less water (maybe substitute some other liquid).
