Memorial Day Munchies

isn't that hummus cute, in its little jar. Yes, yes it is.

Memorial day is coming up, and most normal people celebrate this occasion by going down the cape or grilling. However, I decided to use this long weekend to celebrate my birth with a sunset celebration. Instead of buying a tub of hummus for 7 dollars or whatever, i made my own, for about $1. Here is what to do:
Take one can of chickpeas and dump it, water included, into the food processor. Then add 5 heaping tablespoons of tahini. (tahini is like peanut butter, but instead of peanuts, its sesame seeds.) Add a tablespoon of paprika, chili powder, and curry powder. Blend until a creamy consistency is achieved. Enjoy this dip with pita chips, celery, bell peppers, on veggie burgers, on salads, or with a spoon. Om nom nom.
