Atrichoke Hummus

I've been making lots of hummus based sammys lately because its filling, nutritious, and darn yummy. I spied this recipe on Pinch My Salt's Blog. After I made my ownPesto I started looking for more spreads I could make my own in the food processor. This was great.

Artichoke Hummus

1 15-ounce can of garbanzo beans (chickpeas), drained and rinsed
6 ounces marinated artichoke hearts, drained and rinsed
1 clove garlic, peeled and chopped or pressed
2 tablespoons tahini (sesame seed paste)
juice of half a lemon (or more, to taste)
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup water
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt (or to taste)
small squirt of Sriracha (optional)
