  • 2 cans (15-16 ounces each) garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained, reserving 1 cup liquid*
  • 2 tablespoons barbecue sauce**
  • 3 tablespoons cayenne pepper sauce, or more to taste
  • 1 tablespoon distilled white vinegar
  • ¼ cup tahini
  • 4 garlic cloves, coarsely chopped
  • 4 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon Ancho chili powder
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cayenne pepper

*Make sure you save the garbanzo bean liquid when you drain and rinse them. Just put a large bowl under your colander rather than draining right into the sink.

**Use any favorite barbecue sauce, preferably a plain one, as lots of smoke, hickory and bourbon flavors will affect the dip flavor.
