The Anti-Chicken Fingers Recipe - Red Pepper Hummus

Homemade whole family loves it! This recipe makes so much more than those little tubs of hummus you get at the grocery...and is way tastier! Serve with warm pita triangles!

Red Pepper Hummus

2 (16 ounce) cans garbanzo beans, drained
1 c roasted red peppers
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/8 cup lemon juice
2 tablespoons tahini
8 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 jalapeno, thinly diced
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper 
3/4 teaspoons cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
3/4 teaspoon dried oregano

In a food processor on low speed, combine the garbanzo beans, olive oil, lemon juice, tahini, garlic, and jalapeno until the ingredients start to blend.  Process until smooth. Season with black pepper, cayenne, cumin and oregano.  Add red peppers and garlic, then turn the speed to medium, and blend to your desired consistency.

Buon appetito!  Leah
