Spicy Red Pepper Bean Dip
This bean dip is ready in about 20 minutes and has a wonderful smokey and deep flavor. This recipe is great to make ahead and portion out as snacks for the week. It has just a touch of spiciness but you can always adjust if you like extra heat. We like to eat this with fresh cut-up veggies and tortilla chips. (Be sure to get Non-GMO). You can also use this as a spread to a sandwich or wrap.

Tahini is a sauce made from sesame seeds. You can find it in most grocery stores in the ethnic food aisle or in the peanut butter isle.
Be sure to use smoked paprika and not regular. The smoked paprika helps give it more flavor.
