I've never peeled my chickpeas when making hummus. Hm. Never even thought about it.
I do rinse them out of the can because I think the liquid they're in is a little briney.
I also just throw mine into the Cuisineart mini-prep chopper thing and it's the perfect size for one batch. Takes me less than 5 mins to throw in a can of beans, a couple T of tahini, a squeeze of lemon, and a few garlic cloves. Sometimes I add a splash of olive oil, sometimes not. A quick whirl, and it's done.
