Ingredients

1 eggplant -- roasted

3 15 oz cans Garbanzo beans (chickpeas) -- rinsed and drained

5 cloves garlic cloves (1/2 head) -- roasted

5 cloves garlic cloves (1/2 head) -- chopped

2 ounces lemon and/or lime juice

3/4 cup tahini -- or more

1 teaspoon Mild New Mexican Chile Powder

1 teaspoon Chipotle powder

1 teaspoon Smoked red Savina powder (Mild to Wild) -- See note

1 tablespoon Ground cumin -- to taste

salt and pepper -- to taste

1/4 bunch cilantro -- chopped

Directions

Cut the eggplant lengthwise in half and place skin side up in broiler. Roast until skin blisters, then turn cut-side up for a few more minutes until cooked through. Remove and cover in a plastic bag until needed. Roast half the head of garlic at the same time. Individual cloves with skin on.

Peel the roasted and fresh garlic and put in blender or food processor. Add the chickpeas and tahini (I pour off some of the oil separated from tahini to reduce the oil content). Peel the eggplant and add it, the New Mex and Chipotle powders, lemon juice, cumin, salt, pepper and some cilantro and blend until smooth. Adjust texture and taste with tahini and lemon juice, salt and various powders. Set some aside 1/3 or so for non-ChileHeads and add the Savina Powder.

"I followed the recipe exactly-once for Christmas Day, the next time for New year's Eve. Both times it was a big hit, with people asking how I made it. I added some frozen fruit icecubes & I made sure the Golden Circle fruit juice packs & soft drink bottles were in the freezer for a while before I made them, so that they were-not frozen of course-but icy cold. There were a few slivers of ice in the fruit juice actually. Very easy to make, liked by just about everyone. Good recipe to have." - sherri3802
