Homemade Hummus

When hummus is this easy to make, you'll never want to buy hummus again!

1 (19 ounce) can garbanzo beans, half the liquid reserved
4 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons tahini
1 clove garlic, chopped
1 teaspoon salt
black pepper to taste
2 tablespoons olive oil
red chili pepper to taste
red pepper flakes to taste

Directions1.In a blender, pour garbanzo beans with reserved liquid,lemon juice, tahini, chopped garlic, salt, & red pepper. Blend until creamy and well mixed.
2.Transfer the mixture to a medium serving bowl. Sprinkle with red pepper flakes and pour olive oil over the top.

I love this recipe because it allows you to get creative and add anything you want. Next time I want to try homemade jalepeno hummus and artichoke hummus (Gee loves artichokes)! Enjoy : )
