  1. Start by draining and rinsing the chickpeas in a colander. Rub the chickpeas together to loosen the skins. Place the colander in a bowl of water and skim off the skins that are floating at the top.

  2. Place all ingredients in a food processor and puree until smooth. Add more oil (or water) as needed for desired consistency.

  3. Taste and add more salt, pepper, cayenne as needed.
