Low fat chili garlic hummus

I simply love the hummus you get in super market but it contains lot of fat. Due to my love for hummus I thought of trying out low fat hummus recipe at home. I was happy with the outcome. Hope you like it too :).

Boiled chickpeas: 1 can or 300 gms
Garlic clove: 1-2 (optional)
Olive oil: 1-2 table spoon
Lime juice: 2-3 table spoon
Red hot chilies / red jalapenos: 2-3 (based on your taste)
Note: I prefer red ones as this will not change the natural color of chickpeas.
Salt to taste
Pine nuts: 1 table spoon (optional)

Mix all the indredients in bowl except for oil and lime juice.
Add oil and lime juice straight into the blender or mixer.
Churn well to create slightly coarse paste.
You can ejoy hummus in various way.
