1 can Garbanzo Beans (Chickpeas), drained
1/3c Kraft Olive Oil Vinaigrettes Roasted Red Pepper (Salad Dressing)
1/3c jar Sweet Roasted Bell Peppers (Preferably w/ Red in it. Optional)
1-2tsp 100% Peanut Butter *SEE NOTES for Options
1/4tsp – 1/2tsp Cumin
1/4tsp  – 1/2tsp Garlic Powder

For Heat (Options, Pick One! I skipped): tTt’s xXx Seasoning, Cayenne, Louisiana Hot Sauce, Red Pepper Flakes

Blend all in Blender til desired smoothness. Serve as Dip, Topping, etc.
Notes: PEANUT BUTTER can be swapped for Fresh Peanuts, Sesame Seeds, Sesame Oil, Tahini… I have only tried 100% Pure Peanut Butter (Literally, the ingredients only say PEANUTS! That’s it!). Some like it sweet, maybe 1/4tsp Sugar can be added… But, I liked it as it was. Healthier, too!
