Southwest Hummus Dip

I really like hummus but sometime you want to mix it up a little bit, this one does just that, gives it a little zip!

Here is what you will need:
1 Medium ear of sweet corn, husk removed & grilled
1 Can (15 oz) garbanzo beans or chickpeas, rinsed and drained
2 Tablespoons of minced fresh cilantro or parsley
1 Teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 Teaspoon chili powder
1/4 Teaspoon salt
1/4 Teaspoon pepper
1/2 Chopped roasted sweet red pepper
1/4 Cup of diced tomatoes

How to make it:
Grill your corn.
In a food processor , combine your beans and spices until well blended.
Stir in your corn, peppers and tomatoes.
Chill in the fridge until ready to serve.
Serve this with pita chips.
