This recipe is a short-cut version for all those times you are caught off guard and need a delicious dip in a flash. Don't be fooled by its simplicity, you'll love the hot savoury, peppery horopito flavour.

Makes 170g
Time: Six minutes to prepare but best when refrigerated for 2-3 hours.

A good pinch of salt
Horopito pepper
Clove of garlic
2 teaspoons of oil
170g of your favourite prepared hummus

1 Add a pinch of salt and horopito pepper to the oil and whisk well.

2 Heat the oil mixture gently for about 5 minutes. This releases the citric flavours and aromatic oils from the horopito pepper. Cool to room temperature.

3 Pour the horopito infused oil into the prepared hummus and stir it through until well mixed.

4 Cover the hummus and refrigerate, allowing the horopito pepper to infuse for 2-3 hours.

5 For a smoother consistency, slowly drizzle in more oil to taste.
