Easy Hummus

A can of garbanzo beans can make a delicious dip for your snack or for a tasty appetizer. Serve with fresh cut up vegetables or simply with tortilla or pita chips. Place everything in a food processor or blender and blend until smooth. Usually tahini paste is used but I don’t have it so peanut butter can give it the same consistency. It will be ready to serve or store in the fridge until the party start. Salud!

1 can garbanzo beans, drained
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
Juice of 1 lemon
2 garlic cloves
1 Tbsp peanut butter
1/8 Cayenne pepper or to taste
Ground sea salt to taste
