Red Roasted Pepper Hummus $3.33

I was grocery shopping with my partner in being "thrifty" crime, Kim, and she was raving about a Trader Joes Hummus, and it reminded me of my own hummus recipe. I went through a huge hummus stage, where I was making and eating it all the time, to the point where I got tired of it. That was years ago, and now I am itching to try have some again. I made several versions of the chickpea recipe, my favorite being the red roasted pepper combo, so I thought we would have that tonight it can be served with pita bread, crackers, or if one wants to limit the carb intake, it can be served with veggies, such as celery, carrots, peppers etc....

1 lb canned chickpeas (drained)$.159
6 ounces red roasted pepper(jar) ..99
1 jalepeno(optional-I like my hummus hot, and since my son won't touch it, I am going hot)*.40
2 cloves garlic .15
1 tsp paprika .05
1 tsp cumin (optional, or if you have it on hand).05
1 tsp olive oil .10
salt and pepper to taste

simply combine all ingredients in food processor, and blend until smooth

cut up pita bread into wedges and place on cookie sheet and warm for 5-10 minutes in oven
