Black Bean & Chickpea DipDip anyone? I started off with every intention of making hummus this afternoon with a Mexican twist… but the twist turned into more Mexican & less hummus so I just call this Black Bean & Chickpea Dip. I went out to dinner this week & had a hummus with peppers & tomatoes in it so I wanted to make my own version but as it turns out things got a little out of control & I clearly can’t call this hummus anymore. It’s a pretty healthy dip packed with protein & vegetables so you don’t really have to feel guilty about this one.
