Old-world Spicy Hummus

2 cans organic Garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 can organic Black beans, drained
1/2 cup Olive oil
1/2 cup Tahinni (ground sesame seed)
5 cloves fresh garlic (about 1/2 cup chopped)
Juice of 1 lemon
1/2 cup Sun-dried tomatoes
1-2 small sweet peppers
1/4 cup pickled jalapenos
 1-2 Tbsp red onion
1/2 tsp blackened seasoning
1/2 tsp red cayenne pepper

Process until smooth using a food processor or manually chop all fresh ingredients then crush and blend beans using a mortar and pestle.

Add salt to taste but no more than 1/2 tsp should accomplish the proper flavor.

Serve either at room temperature or warmed with organic Blue corn chips - Garden of Eatin brand are excellent and are not too salty.

This is a modification of my standard Hummus recipe

And another Modification of this recipe:

1 cup Sun-dried tomatoes
2 small sweet peppers
3 cans garbanzo beans drained, rinsed
Use no black beans
Use no onion
Use no blackened seasoning
3/4 tsp salt. - this is something that I left out in the above recipe.

Chill and enjoy with "Garden of Eatin'" Blue Chips - salted. These chips do not contaminate the flavor of the hummus.
