Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

Hummus is one of those easy to make foods that can be extremely versatile!   Plus, it's great for your body so how can you go wrong?  I tinkered around and came up with my favorite roasted red pepper version.  Also, it's kid approved.  

Roasted Red Pepper Hummus
1 15 oz can garbanzo beans drained and rinsed
2 cloves garlic or ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
1/3 cup jarred roasted red peppers
2 tablespoons Tahini (optional)
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
½ teaspoon cumin
¼ teaspoon onion powder
1/8 teaspoon chili powder
¼ teaspoon sea salt or to taste
¼ teaspoon pepper or to taste
 Combine all ingredients in food processor until smooth.  Serve with veggie sticks, tortilla or pita chips.  This is also great in pitas or on sandwiches.  Happy Hummussing!
