I got this recipe from a cookbook I was perusing while at the inlaws on the 4th of July. My father-in-law has an extensive cookbook collection, and I usually take the time to see if he’s added anything new since my last visit. This particular recipe came from the Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives Cookbook from Guy Fieri. I love that show, because most of the establishments they visit have recipes that have been passed down for generations, and they almost always use the freshest ingredients…my ears always perk up when I hear that a particular joint uses only organic produce and ingredients, most of which they grow themselves or buy from local farmers. Anyway, I got away with 3 recipes that day, and this is one of them. I’m very happy I took the time to write this one down…SO GOOD!!!
SO here goes…simply add all of these ingredients into a blender or food processor, blend until smooth, and ENJOY! If you’re using a Blendtec, just use the Sauces and Dips button, and that should do it!
*1 15 oz can Organic Garbanzo Beans (chickpeas)
*1 15 oz can Organic Black Beans (I use Eden Foods for both, no BPA in the can lining!))
*2/3 c Olive Oil (the recipe called for blended canola and olive oil, but I just used the evoo)
*1/3 c water
*1 Tablespoon Tahini
*2 small cloves Garlic chopped
*4 teaspoons Chili Powder
*Juice of 1 and 1/2 Limes or to taste
* 1 and 1/4 teaspoons Sea Salt
*1 teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
*Pinch each of Ground Coriander, Ground Cumin, and Ground Cinnamon
