Spicy Black Bean Hummus

I made this in about 3 minutes.  Simple would be an understatement.  It is a little spicy, but good.  I didn't use the Pita Chips because I was using it on pitas for breakfast.  Would make again.

Yield: 8 servings (serving size: about 2 1/2 tablespoons hummus and 4 chips)

1 garlic clove, peeled (used 3)
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon tahini (roasted sesame seed paste) (heaping)
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 (15-ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 small jalapeño pepper, chopped (about 2 tablespoons) (mine was a bit big...I seeded but didn't de-rib)
Dash of crushed red pepper
2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
Dash of ground red pepper
1 (6-ounce) bag pita chips (such as Stacy's Simply Naked)

1. Place garlic in a food processor; process until finely chopped. Add lemon juice, tahini, cumin, salt, black beans, jalapeño pepper, and crushed red pepper; process until smooth. Spoon bean mixture into a medium bowl, and drizzle with extra-virgin olive oil. Sprinkle with ground red pepper.  (I added the oil and ground red pepper into the processor since I was using at a later time). Serve with pita chips.
