Default black bean hummus

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

I used dried black beans.. but you can use canned.. (dried, in bulk is cheaper )
so:
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!!

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)
