Good morning guys,  It’s a bright, sunny day here in New York.  I just got back from a 1.5k run earlier this morning, so I’m invigorated and ready to start the day.  

It’s actually an awesome day for running or exercising outdoors.  It’s not too hot and there’s a crisp 59°F chill in the air so you feel invigorated while you get your sweat on.  

What’s better than enjoying this cool protein packed Black Beans and Red Pepper Hummus after a workout.  It’s also great at outdoor picnics, barbecues or gatherings or as an appetizer.  It certainly doesn’t last very long in this house.  It’s so good.

This hummus has an amazing texture.  It is smooth, creamy, cool from the refrigerator, and a has a little heat to spice things up.  Well, it can be a bit hot if you are not used to peppery spices.  

On the heat index, and this is just my personal opinion I’m used to spicy foods, its mild to medium.  If you don’t like spicy foods, feel free to leave out the cayenne pepper.  It’s still an amazing dish without the added heat. So let’s make this amazing dish.  

Start by adding a can of black beans, chopped red peppers, garlic and tahini to a food processor.  Next add the lemon juice, sazon seasoning mix (I use a homemade mixture), paprika and cayenne powder and start the processor.

While the processor is running, drizzle in 2 tbsp of avocado oil.  You can also choose to use your favorite oil or olive oil.  Continue to blend until the consistency and texture is smooth or stop when it meets your desired texture.
