Spicy Black Bean Hummus

I don't LOVE Hummus. I like it. But when I saw this recipe, I thought I maybe, just maybe could LOVE Hummus! We eat black beans like they were going out of style around here and Riley didn't even know that beans of other colors existed! Poor little fella...

Spicy Black Bean Hummus

1 garlic clove, peeled
2 T fresh lemon juice
1 T tahini (roasted sesame seed paste)
1 tsp. ground cumin (I used more, maybe 1 T)
1/4 tsp. salt
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 small jalapeno pepper, chopped (about 2 T)
dash of crushed red pepper
pita chips

Place garlic in food processor; process until finely chopped. Add lemonn juice, tahini, cumin, salt, beans, jalapeno, pepper, red pepper; and process until smooth. Soon bean mixture into medium bowl and drizzle with extra-virgin olive oil. Sprinkle with ground red pepper. Serve with pita chips.
