Partially drain the can of garbanzo beans. I drain most of the liquid and add more oil for our taste and to get more fat content. Pour the contents along with the onion and garlic into a small food processor or blender. Process a bit until chopped. Scrape down sides of bowl. Add the remaining ingredients and process until very smooth. Scrape as necessary to make sure there are no chunks. Check for salt and vinegar and adjust if necessary. If it seems too dry, add a bit more oil or some water.
You can garnish with additional olive oil drizzled on top and some paprika. Serve as a dip for crackers, olives, pita, cucumber slices, etc. Use a sandwich spread.
