My son loved hummus as a toddler...which is how we discovered his allergies to both chickpeas and sesame seeds. I, too, love hummus...very, very, very much! Thus, I tweaked recipes & combinations without using chickpeas & sesame seeds until I was satisfied with the taste. I am offering my 3 favorite for your enjoyment.

[b]Easy Hummus[/b]

1 19 oz can Great Northern Beans, drained
1 small hot banana pepper, seeded
1 tsp ground cumin
2 Tbs lemon juice
3 cloves garlic

In a blender or food processor, combine beans, hot pepper, cumin, lemon juice, garlic and 1 tablespoon of the reserved bean liquid. Blend until smooth.

You could call that Huh-uh-mus. As in, not hummus (but close)!

I'd just call it bean dip, which is what I call any bean spread that doesn't have chickpeas and tahini.
