Here you go girls..

Black Bean Hummus

1 clove garlic
1- 15 oz. can black beans, drain and reserve liquid
2 Tbs. lemon juice
1 1/2 Tbs. Tahini
3/4 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp paprika

Process everything in food processor with 2 Tbs of bean liquid. If too thick add more liquid until dipping consistency. Serve with Pita Bread toasted. Also good with tortilla chips.

When Krista gave me this recipe...She said sometimes in Central America they would eat this for a meal on a Sunday evening if they wanted something light for supper. I said, no way could I just eat bean dip just for a meal. I stand corrected. WOW! This is an awesome meal and snack. Lots of protein and oh so good.

Tahini is available at Health food stores. I have extra- if your close enough you can come over and get some. :)

We love hummus, but I've never tried it with black beans! Sounds yummy.
