Makes 4 Servings
In a food processor, combine the kidney beans, chickpeas, sweet potato, salt, cinnamon, tahini, garlic, lime juice, 1/2 tsp (2.5 mL) of chili powder, and 1 tbsp (15 mL) of water.
Puree until smooth, gradually adding 2 tbsp (30 mL) of water if needed to thin the hummus and scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.
Add the fresh cilantro or parsley (if using) and puree briefly to incorporate.
Season with additional salt and the remaining 1/2 tsp (2.5 mL) chili powder, if desired.
