Spicy Black Bean Hummus Dip

I usually have a container of store-bought hummus in my refrigerator at all times for munchies, but I felt like trying something different for a change.  For my first attempt at homemade hummus, I decided to make a Spicy Black Bean Hummus.  I doubled the recipe and served half as a party appetizer and saved the other half for myself!  This dip has the perfect amount of spicy flavor that I like in a flavored hummus.  I will defiantly be incorporating this into many recipes to come.  First up is going to be a Hummus Turkey Burger!
