Black bean hummus

I am not sure where I found this recipe, but knew we would have to try it. It was very good and we all liked it. It makes a LOT, so make sure you have a party to go to when you make it! :-)

Black Bean Hummus

1 (15 ounce) can garbanzo beans, drained
2 (15 ounce) cans black beans, drained
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 cup chopped garlic
3 tablespoons tahini paste
1 lemon, juiced
1 1/2 cups water, more or less as needed(we used 1/2 cup)
1 1/2 teaspoons cayenne pepper, more or less to taste (we used 1 tsp)
2 1/2 teaspoons cumin
2 1/4 teaspoons salt, more to taste (We used a bit more)
1 1/2 teaspoons pepper, more to taste

In a food processor or blender, combine the garbanzo beans, black beans, olive oil, garlic, tahini paste and lemon juice. With the motor running, drizzle in the water until the beans are blended and a smooth consistency is achieved. Add the cayenne pepper, cumin, salt and pepper, then blend again.

Taste and adjust seasonings and flavorings if desired. This makes 4 cups hummus; the hummus will keep, covered and refrigerated, for 5 days.
