"Peanuts are a legume, as are beans. Since I like bean hummus, I thought to try a southern favorite, boiled peanuts, in their place. Serve with raw vegetables and crackers. I also like it with cantaloupe or honeydew melons. This is amazingly good!"
Bring water and peanuts to a boil in a saucepan; reduce heat to low and simmer until peanuts are soft, about 30 minutes. Blend peanuts and water with a hand blender until smooth; add more water, if necessary, to reach desired consistency. Continue blending and add onion, peanut butter, and garlic; season with salt.
Transfer mixture to a serving dish and sprinkle with chipotle powder.
