Spiced Pumpkin Hummus

Hummus is a healthy snack year round, but this time of year I like to give it a seasonal twist and add pumpkin!  I often times have canned pumpkin left over from another recipe I have made and this is the perfect way to use it.  Not only that, it adds nutrients as well!  This hummus doesn’t taste like pumpkin pie though, it is savory.  I add warming spices, cumin, coriander and chipotle powder to give this an exotic twist.  I like to make this at the beginning of the week, so I have something to snack on when I want something quick and healthy.  It is perfect with seeded crackers or veggies, or even spread on sandwiches!
