Easy Hummus

1 28-oz can chick peas, well drained
2 T tahini (Sesame paste, found in most healthy food stores)
2 T lemon juice
2 big cloves of garlic
1 T salt
1/4 c of olive oil or more to taste

Dump all of it in a good blender or food processor. Add more olive oil till you get the consistency you like. Drizzle with olive oil, and sprinkle with paprika to serve. Great with pita chips, carrots, or spooned onto endive leaves. If you want you an add a few roasted red peppers to make roasted red pepper hummus, or you can add some dill for dill hummus - get creative! WAY cheaper than store bought esp, if you get the chick peas at a dollar store!
