Spicy Bean Spread or Dip
1 15-oz. can of beans, any type
1 tsp. mild chili salsa, chili powder, or crushed red chili peppers
1 pinch cumin or turmeric (optional)
¼ tsp. garlic powder, or two garlic cloves, crushed
Mash the beans with a fork, masher, or food processor with about half the liquid from the can. Mix in the spices. Serve with raw or lightly steamed vegetables or toasted pita bread.

Tasty Hummus Spread or Dip

1 tbsp. tahini (sesame seed butter)
2 tbsp. lemon juice
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
