How to make this recipe
Add the spinach to a medium saucepan, cover and cook over low heat until bright green and tender, stirring occasionally, about 4 minutes. Squeeze and drain the excess water from the spinach and set aside.
In a food processor, add the spinach and pulse until finely chopped. Combine the chickpeas, artichokes, garlic, tahini, 1 tablespoon hot pepper sauce, cumin, cayenne, and salt and puree to a chunky consistency. Scrape down the side of the bowl. Add 3 tablespoons of the olive oil and lemon juice and puree until smooth. Loosen the consistency with water, and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper. Scrape the hummus into a bowl. Drizzle with the remaining olive oil and douse with a few tablespoons of the hot sauce over the top. Serve with pita chips.
The hummus can be refrigerated for up to 2 days. Bring to room temperature to serve.
