What do you do w/ garbanzo beans?
I have about 24 cans of garbanzo beans I'd like to use.

I love garbanzo beans! When I make Vegetarian Chili, I always put 1 or 2 cans in it. Also good in stews!

I make hummus! It's easy if you have a food processor.
2 cans garbanzos, drained but save some liquid
1/4 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 small onion, chopped
2-4 cloves garlic, chopped
1 teaspoon cumin, dash hot pepper
1/2 cup tahini (found in salad dressing aisle), stir to blend oil.
With the motor of the processor running drop in the garlic and onion and process until finely chopped. Stop and scrape down the sides. Add the beans, lemon juice, olive oil, cumin, hot pepper and tahini. Process until blended. Add reserved liquid until you get the consistency you enjoy.
Place in deep pie plate and garnish with:
1/4 cup each finely chopped red onion, red bell pepper, yellow bell pepper, orange bell pepper, Italian parsley. [You can also mix this in.] Serve with pita, pita chips or falafel chips. I sometimes make a Guaca-Hummus dip...combine equal parts hummus and guacamole, canned black beans, diced tomatoes, and the onion, peppers, and parsley. Add hot sauce to taste and serve with "hint of lime" tortilla chips. This is a chunky dip!
LOVE garbanzo beans!! I can eat them straight from the can, as a snack! I also like them crisped in the oven with garlic powder on them. My grandma always served a can of garbanzo beans as a topper for taco salad.
One recipe I use them in a lot of Chunky Taco Soup. http://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/chunky-taco-soup I substitute a can of garbanzos for one of the cans of pinto beans... YUM!!
I also like to make hummus, and the kids like it, too. I've never made it with the traditional tahini because it is pricey/hard to find around here. This is the recipe I use. You can get sesame oil in the Asian food section at Walmart, etc and it is a lot cheaper :)
1 can chickpeas, drained
2 Tbsp lemon juice
2 Tbsp Olive oil
2 cloves garlic, finely minced
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
3 Tbsp sesame oil
2-3 Tbsp warm water
Blend all in food processor until smooth. Serve with pita chips, crackers, or veggies.

They are wonderful in almost any salad, straight from the can, drained and rinsed. Add to pastas, soups, veggie and rice dishes. You have a gold mine.. wow, where did you get such a windfall of 24 cans???

I make hummus too
I buy cases of fruits and vegetables at a time. Very nice in the winter!
I make hummus and use them in salads....here are two of the very best recipes (in my opinion!) Of course, they're from the Taste of Home!
