Step 1

Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add sweet potato cubes and cook until fork tender, about 7 minutes.

Drain sweet potatoes and set aside to cool for about 5 minutes. Toss all the ingredients into a food processor and whirl away until smooth (if you are sensitive to spice you may want to add the spices last and add a little at time and taste test as you go) This dip tastes amazing while still warm! However, it tastes just as great chilled.

Add more spices each day if the hummus mellows out too much.
