Curry Hummus

If you like corn chips (and who doesn't?) then you've probably tried, or at least heard, hummus.  It's a tasty chick pea based dip that has great potential to be built upon.  This past week, we made Curry Hummus.  Super simple, and way cheaper than the market's tiny tub of $6 over-processed crap.  Add pine nuts and oil on top, or cilantro, or whatever else sounds good!

Curry Hummus

-1 can (15 oz) chick peas, undrained (drain if thicker texture is desired)
-1/2 tbsp olive oil
-1/2 tbsp lime juice
-1 tbsp minced garlic
-1/2 tbsp cumin
-1 tsp curry powder (add more to taste)
-1/2 tsp sesame seeds
-dash of salt
-dash of pepper
-1/4 tsp paprika
-1 tbsp lemon pepper

Throw everything in a food processor.

 Blend until smooth throughout.

Add spices to taste, it's you're hummus after all.


And that's it!  So much tastier, so much cheaper!

P.S. - Dip some blue corn tortilla chips in that stuff and drink a cerveza del casa...what a treat!
