White Bean Poblano Hummus

Little Devil loves hummus.  It's probably her favorite snack.  Along with raspberries and Laughing Cow cheese.  Not all together though.  At any given time our fridge has a stack of hummus containers and Laughing Cow cheese in every flavor.  While the ready made variety is delicious, it's easy enough to make hummus at home.  Traditionally it's made with chick peas (garbanzo beans) but I've made hummus with all kind of ingredients.  Everything from the traditional tahini (sesame paste) to pumpkin.  I decided a White Bean Hummus might be good, so I started with a can of white (Cannellini) beans.  I didn't want to go with traditional Italian flavors you might associate with that type of bean.  Instead I decided the rich, slightly smokey flavor of a roasted poblano pepper would be a great compliment. I was right.  Little Devil loved it and so did we.  Serve with some pita bread or pretzel chips for a tasty, healthy snack.
