Okay so I made some tonight... It's AMAZING!!!

I used dried black beans.. but you can use canned.. (dried, in bulk is cheaper )
1cup uncooked dried (becomes 3cups cooked or canned) black beans
2 TBSP Tahini (or EVOO.. but Tahini is a better flavor) per 1cup of beans
garlic cloves.. however many to taste
ground red pepper.. to taste
salt...to taste..
a bit of water (or lemon, lime juice).. to thin it out a bit.
onion powder...to taste
chili powder...to taste
1/2 plum tomato chunked up

throw the cooked beans and everything else, minus the water. Start mixing, add water as necessary to thin it out... I ended up using just under 1/2cup..
This is REALLY REALLY REALLY YUMMY!!! I'm enjoying it with a bunch of veggies!! Its sooo good!!! and store in the fridge
It's a great way to get in those veggies with a good lower calorie, high protein and fiber dip
Will post nutrition facts next!!

"2 TBS per 1 cup of beans"

Do you mean 2 tbs olive oil?

sorry.. I'll edit it LOL.. its tahini (or EVOO) although Tahini takes it from black bean paste to a hummus flavor (for the sesame seeds)
