Spicy Black Bean Hummus

This is a delicious dip from Cooking light (serve with homemade whole grain pita chips, sprouted wheat chips, veggies, etc) or as side dish to your favorite mexican meal or in burritos, quesadillas, etc.

1 garlic clove
2 TBS fresh lemon or lime juice
1 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp salt
1 small jalapeno pepper, chopped
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
2 TBS extra virgin olive oil
1 (15 oz) can black beans, rinsed and drained

-In blender or food processor combine all ingredients except black beans. Add beans and pulse/blend until smooth or a bit chunky depending on preference.
-If you want a "less" spicy dip remove 1/2 or all of jalepeno seeds and pith.
-Garnish with jalapeno slices or paprika
