Hummus                             Makes: 1 ¾ cups

(Given to me by Barbara Houser)

In a food processor or blender, combine the following:

1 (15 oz.) can chickpeas (garbanzo beans), undrained

¼ cup tahini (sesame paste)

1 Tbsp. lemon juice

2-4 cloves garlic

¼ tsp. salt

¼ to ½ tsp. ground red pepper (if desired)

Process or blend until smooth.

Spoon into a serving bowl.

Barbara’s Note: If you don’t want that “kick” you can omit the ground red pepper.

Inner Chef’s Note: I have had this and it is very tasty!

  1. Ground Red Pepper is the same as Cayenne Pepper; according to McCormick’s.

  2. Thanks for posting this! So what is ground red pepper? Is that like ground up chile peppers? I’ve never bought that before but I bet i can find it at the Spice Merchant here.
