Sweet Potato Chipotle Hummus

Originally published March 1, 2017 A recipe for a Sweet Potato Chipotle Hummus recently piqued my interest. Armed with a leftover sweet potato to use up from dinner last night, I gave it a try. The recipe is supposed to taste like classic hummus with a sweet and spicy flare.
