Zesty Kidney Bean Dip

Ingredients
1 15.5 oz can of Kidney Beans
1/2 tsp Oregano
1 tsp Cumin
1/4 tsp Cayenne
1 Garlic clove, peeled
1/2 c Green or Red Pepper, chopped
2 tbsp Olive Oil
Juice of 1/2 of a Lime
Salt & Pepper

Pulse together all of the ingredients in a food processor until it's at the consistency you like. You can add any ingredients you think would go well with this! I just added what I had in the fridge with a "chili" inspired theme. It's basically hummus with Kidneys rather than Garbanzo beans, so you could even go with Greek flavors like Olives, sun-dried Tomatoes, and Garlic! 

I spread my dip over a couple of Rice Cakes, which my mom always had in our pantry growing up, so they remind me of home - they're light and crunchy which I love! I then topped them with sliced Cucumber, Radishes, and Cilantro.
