Shylah's Super Garlickkky Hummus

Serves 7-8

2 cans of garbanzo beans (chic peas) rinsed
2 heaping spoonfulls of tahini
4-5 large whole cloves of garlic
1/2 cup olive oil
2 lemons, juiced
dash of cayenne pepper
1 tsp. garlic salt
1/2 cup water to smooth

Put half of all of the ingredients into a food processor or blender and pulse then puree, streaming in water for a nice smooth consistency. Once fairly smooth, add the remaining ingredients and repeat. Add less water if the first batch was too thin. Blend on high for 2-3 minutes. Use a spatula to scrape the dip into a bowl. Garnish with paprika and a drizzle of olive oil. Cover and chill for 1 hour or more. Serve chilled with pita wedges or fresh veggies.
