simple homemade taco hummus

This simple taco hummus has a unique flavor and makes a great dip. I have to admit I am not a fan of hummus. It never really appealed to me. But #1 likes it, and since I have been making it homemade, it is starting to grow on me. This is a really simple recipe but tastes great.

Once again I used Dyno-moms taco seasoning. I now always have some on hand to add to different dishes. If you haven't yet checked it out, you must!



Ingredients

1 1/2 cups chickpeas - I used dried and soaked them overnight
~1 cup light olive oil
~ 1/2 cup lime juice
1 heaping Tbsp Dyno-moms taco seasoning

Directions

You can used canned chickpeas, but I used dry. Once they are soaked, place them in a large pot of water and boil for about ten minutes. 
Drain the beans.
Place all ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth and creamy. I started off with less olive oil and lime juice, but as I went along the hummus was too chunky and gritty. So I added more liquid as I needed and tasted as I went along. You may also want to add less seasoning and taste as you go. It can get spicy.
