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.

Another yummy hummus recipe, using black beans instead of garbonzo beans. It’s a spicy Mexican hummus! Next time, I’m going to add more cumin and garlic. I baked some pita chips in the oven at 400 degrees for about 12 minutes, or until they were golden brown. It’s a very yummy snack.
I was downstairs exercising after work today, and I can’t really trust my dogs. They chewed up a pair of my unmentionables on Tuesday, and today they ruined the zipper on my work jacket. Now I have to figure out how to get that back on. Anybody know how to put the bottom part of a jacket back on where you connect the zipper?
