I know hummus means chick pea, but I have a pantry full of dried beans that need to be cooked. I decided I would use them to perfect my hummus recipe. The spices can be changed depending on the type of bean you use.
Beans are great at bringing down cholesterol, and dip can be used in a variety of ways.
Here is the recipe that I came up with for my pinto beans. I love the Pinto Beans Muy Facil. The recipe came from Allrecipes.com, and is great to just eat, make into dip, or use in refried beans. The beans are cooked with jalapenos, garlic, and onions. This gives them a nice flavor.
