Extreme Garlic and Bacon Red Bean Hummus

Ever just have a craving for something?

Sooooooo. . . . . I bought these Sea Salt Pita crackers. . . .

I love Pita crackers alone, but I really like them with dip, too.  I was out running errands on an empty stomach and I started to want some hummus.  I was going to make regular hummus but I only had one can of chickpeas left and I didn't want to use our last can.  I had a lot more red beans, so I decided to give red beans a try. 

I was starving and planning this hummus all the way home.  Wouldn't it be good with bacon?  Soooo hungry.  And it should have a lot of garlic!  And it should be spicy.  It should definitely be spicy.  I wanted to use horseradish sauce, but I didn't have any.  What I DID have in my fridge was a brand new jar of capers.  So, those are in here too!  What a mish-mash hummus.  This hummus or bean dip, whatever you want to call it, is extremely quick and easy.  Just what I needed in a pinch to satisfy these cravings!  Since I used turkey bacon, capers, and canned red beans, I didn't add any extra salt.

Here's what I used:

1 15/5 oz. can dark red kidney beans
1 Tablespoon capers
1 teaspoon olive oil
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
1/8 teaspoon cumin
2 slices crisp turkey bacon, broken into pieces
4 - 5 cloves garlic (I told you it was extreme!)

Place all ingredients into bowl of a food processor and process on the food processor function until smooth~~about 1 minute.

I served mine with a thin slice of tomato and a baby spinach leaf on top of Pita crackers.  I also will probably cut up some celery to dip into it.


What is your favorite kind of hummus?
