3 cloves garlic
2 (19 ounce) cans chickpeas, drained
3 tablespoons lemon or lime juice
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and chopped
1. Place garlic in a food processor and process until minced. Add beans, lime (or lemon) juice and salt. Process into a puree.
2. With the processor running, slowly add olive oil in a steady stream. Add cilantro and jalapenos.
3. Process until mixture thickens and ingredients are completely mixed. If you can't find fresh jalapenos, you can use a small can of pickled ones.
