Spicy Black Bean Hummus

black bean hummusI make hummus at least once a week, as it’s a favorite healthy snack in our house. I usually use chickpeas, but decided to play around with black beans, and came up with this spicy hummus. It was so good, there was barely enough left to transfer to a bowl. I hope you like it. If you have any favorite healthy snacks or hummus recipes, please share!
