2 (15-ounce) cans low-sodium chickpeas, drained (reserve 1/2 cup of liquid from one can)
1 (1-ounce) packet low-sodium taco seasoning
Juice of 1/2 lemon
2 tablespoons tahini
Cut fresh veggies, Tortilla chips, or whole-grain crackers
1. In a blender or food processor, combine the chickpeas, taco seasoning, lemon juice, tahini, and 1 tablespoon of the reserved liquid from the can. Put the cover on the blender and blend until smooth. If the hummus is too thick, add more reserved liquid from the can, 1 tablespoon at a time, until you reach the desired consistency.
2. Using a spatula, transfer the hummus to a serving dish. Serve with crackers, tortilla chips, or whole-grain crackers for dipping.
