Zesty Hummus-Like Spread

I made this for a party and it seemed to go over well. Next time I might drain the beans though because it turned out a little thinner than I would have liked. Serve with bagel or pita chips. Makes 2 cups.


1 (15 ounce) can garbanzo beans
1/4 cup Italian-style salad dressing
1/2 cup creamy salad dressing, e.g. Miracle Whip ™
1 red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon sesame seeds


In a food processor, blend the garbanzo beans, Italian-style salad dressing, creamy salad dressing, 1/2 red bell pepper, oregano, garlic powder and sesame seeds.
Spread on a bagel or pita, garnish with spinach and the leftover bell pepper, or serve as a dip with crackers, garnish with bell pepper cubes.
