Personal Notes:
White people have a lot of explaining to do when it comes to grocery store hummus. We've done bad things to chickpeas and we must atone. This is a quick and easy recipe that doesn't involve rehydrating dried chickpeas as traditional recipes do. The cheaters-trick is to use canned chickpeas, just make sure to rinse them really well to get any additional salt off.
