Black bean hummus

I made a batch this morning from a Cooking Light recipe. Yum!!!!

Here's what you do:

15 oz can of black beans, rinsed and drained
1 clove garlic (about 1/2 t. minced)
1 small jalapeno, chopped (about 2 T)
1 T tahini
2 t. extra virgin olive oil
1 t. cumin
2 T lemon juice
dash cayenne

Toss it all in the food processor and puree to the desired consistency. Serve with raw veggies and/or whole wheat pita chips or Kashi TLC crackers or what have you for a yummy, spicy diet-friendly snack.
