- With most of my hummus recipes I add water. With this recipe it's not needed because black beans contain more water than chickpeas.
- Taste as you go - you may want more or less spice than I've included.
- Let it sit overnight to thicken. It doesn't get as thick as a chickpea hummus, but it will thicken a bit.
