Ingredients

    2 cans Goya chick peas/garbanzo, low sodium--rinse and drain ONE can only
    2 teaspoons Texas Pete Hot Sauce

Tips

The longer you blend it the smoother it will be. The flavor and thickness changes after this sits. We've discovered that you can change this recipe endlessly. Change the spices. Add more salt and more oil. Don't add any oil. You can add other beans and veggies. We like to add hot peppers. It's all good!


Directions

This recipe calls for two cans of garbanzo beans. Save and use the liquid from one can. Rinse and drain one can of garbanzo beans. You can use a food processor or a blender. I use a blender because it makes it smoother than the processor. Puree the undrained can of beans with all the other ingredients first. Then add the rest of the beans and puree until smooth.
