Black Bean & Kalamata Olive Hummus

Good morning everyone, I'm back! I was in Orlando for my daughters' school cheer competition (where they took 3rd place) for the last 5 days. And even though it was a short trip, we did cram a lot in while we were there besides the competition. We got to visit with my Mom, visited the Magic Kingdom, Downtown Disney, Epcot and breakfast with Mickey and friends. I found some wonderful new flavored salts, herbs and rices I can't wait to experiment with too like Raspberry and Lime Frost Sea Salt, Purple Sticky and Bamboo Green rices, and Feta cheese and Indian Curry powders. 

Thank you once again to my Guest Bloggers, Bia Rich, Mia Reiter and Lauren Kelly for filling in while I was away. If anyone else is interested in being a Guest Blogger in the future, simply email me at 

And now for today's recipe....

During one of my recent trips to the store, I found these new flavored tortilla chips made with olives, garlic and sea salt by Food Should Taste Good. I decided that a nice hummus would go nice with them rather than my normal salsa, but didn't have any chick peas, so I made this quick dip with black beans and kalamata olives. It was fantastic, filling and healthy to boot!

Black Bean & Kalamata Olive Hummus
1-15oz. Can Black Beans, rinsed and drained
1 Clove Garlic, chopped
2 Scallions, chopped
1 dz. Kalamata Olives, pitted
1 tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Add the first four ingredients into a food processor and pulse until all ingredients have been mixed together. Next, add the oil and pulse again until the mixture is a paste-like consistency. Serve with tortilla chips. Serves 4. 

Points+=3pts (not including the chips)
