Spicy Hummus

2 (16 ounce) cans garbanzo beans, drained
2 Tbs olive oil
1/8 cup lemon juice
2 Tbs tahini ( you could also use 2 Tbs of melted peanut butter)
8 cloves garlic, minced
2 slices jarred jalapeno pepper, chopped
1 tsp liquid from the jar of jalapeno peppers
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
1 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp ground cumin
3/4 tsp dried oregano

In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the garbanzo beans, olive oil, lemon juice, tahini, garlic, jalapeno, and juice from the jalapeno jar. Season with black pepper, cayenne, cumin and oregano.

Mix using the whisk attachment on low speed until the ingredients start to blend, then turn the speed to medium, and blend to your desired consistency. Cover and refrigerate overnight to allow the flavors to blend together.
