Spicy Chickpea Hummus

*spicy chickpea hummus

I make this all the time…so good to have in the house as a quick source of veggie protein for sandwiches, salads, fresh vegetable dipping. It takes less than 5 minutes to make and is a vegan staple. The addition of the fresh chili pepper gives it an unbelievable amount of kick without being overwhelming. I also use RAW tahini, and fresh lemon juice (NEVER bottled) in this recipe- I take the RAW nutrition wherever I possibly can…..YUM.
