  3. Once they are cool you can take the skin from the peppers and remove the seeds.
  4. Process the chickpeas with the olive oil, the sesame paste, garlic and lemon juice in a food processor until smooth.
  5. Then add the bell peppers and the smoked paprikapowder until smooth.
  6. Bring to taste with salt and pepper and you're ready to go.
