Spicy Hummus

My father-in-law taught me many kitchen lessons. With his hummus recipe I learned:
1. Making your own hummus is easy and tastier than the store-bought version
2. Remembering to keep the lid on the blender is easier than cleaning hummus off of the ceiling.
xo, Trevor ;) !

1 can chickpeas drained and rinsed
2 tbsp tahini
3-4 tbsp olive oil
1/2 lemon, juiced
1 clove garlic
1/4 tsp chili powder (not Mexican chili powder...Indian chili powder, or you can use cayenne)
1/4 tps cumin
salt & pepper to taste

Place everything in a blender (don't forget to close the lid!!) and purée until smooth. Add a little water to loosen as necessary. I garnished this with an extra sprinkling of cumin and chili powder. Serve with warm naan or pita.
