Black bean hummus

You guys, I can't. stop. making. hummus. Seriously, I opened the Pandora's box of homemade hummus and can never go back. It's just so good! And so cheap! In that, it's inexpensive, not that it's of little account or value (thanks, dictionary.com). Anyway, to make this hummus:

1 can (15 oz.) of black beans, drained, but reserve the liquid
2 tbsp tahini sauce
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 clove of garlic, chopped
Juice from 1/2 a lime
Spices to taste - I used a dash of salt, a dash of cumin, and a healthy helping of Trader Joe's Everyday Seasonings

How to: 
In a blender or in the cup of your immersion blender (which I personally prefer), puree until smooth all the ingredients listed above plus half of the liquid from the can of beans. If you like a thicker hummus use less liquid, use more liquid to thin it out. Add some cilantro if you like (I'm actually not a fan, but most people love it) and serve with your favorite chips and/or veggies!
