I so love hummus or any kind of dip. I saw this recipe and knew I had to make it. Combining my 2 favorite beans, the chickpea and the black bean. Could it get any better?
I did find it a bit citrussy. I have no idea if that is a word. Too much citrus. So I added another can of chickpeas. I thought it was perfect.
I ate a lot.
Luckily we had a bunch of veggies in the house for me to dip. The pea pods were my favorite.
I also made homemade chips. I just use my 100 calorie whole wheat tortillas, cut them into wedges and spray lightly with cooking spray. Then season with salt, pepper and whatever other spice you might like. I like making garlic chips or ranch chips. Garlic is my favorite.

I ate a bunch of veggies, 2 tortillas and a whole bunch of black bean hummus. I'm not entirely sure of the calories but it was certainly healthy and delicious!
