Default Hummus

We absolutely love this stuff -- and so do our families and friends and coworkers. Watch the portions! Great on everything from carrots to whole wheat pitas (Ph 2.)

1 cup chick peas (garbanzo beans) [1 can is roughly 1-1/2 cups]
6 tablespoons tahini (sesame butter)
2 cloves garlic, roughly chopped (we use 1-2 heads garlic)
5 tablespoons lemon juice
3 tablespoons virgin olive oil
cayenne pepper, to taste
1/2 cup liquid from chick peas

Drain chick peas, reserving liquid. Combine chick peas, tahini, garlic, lemon juice, olive oil, and a pinch of cayenne pepper in a food processor. Slowly add liquid from chick peas until hummus is of desired consistency. Add cayenne, lemon, and oil to taste.
