Hummus Bi Tahini

1 can chick peas (about 2 cups) — drained and well-rinsed
1/4 c tahini
2 cloves garlic, large
5 tbsp fresh lemon juice (about two lemons)
1/4 c olive oil
1 tsp coarse salt
1 tsp ground cumin
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
1/4 c warm water

Place all ingredients except water in a food processor and process for about 2 minutes. Remove lid and scrape down sides. Add water and process briefly again. Scrape down sides. The mixture should be somewhat coarse and not quite runny. Add a bit more water if needed.

Refrigerate for four hours to allow flavors to meld. The consistency will thicken to a firm paste.
