Add olive oil in a thin drizzle while processer is running, blending until mixture is creamy. Season with salt and pepper, add additional chipotle to taste. Transfer to small bowl and garnish with red onion.

The flavors are not middle eastern, it is more Southwestern and quite spicy... delicious in a small dish eaten with crisp diced cucumber and tomato or to use in a wrap with sauteed vegetables. Broil tomato slices to soften them, add small scoop of this spread, top with jack cheese and broil.
