Faced with feeding a hungry group of people some snacks, I decided that rather than heading out and buying store-bought hummus, I just threw together stuff I had in the pantry. As a result, I ended up with a smoky-spicy hummus-like dip. Perfect for vegetables, pita and crackers.

I left out the oil but if yours is coming out dry, you can add about a tablespoon into the mixture and you should be good to go.

Recipe: Black Bean and Chickpea Dip
