Let's get grilling

1 Build a charcoal fire for direct grilling using Kingsford® charcoal. Preheat to 450°F.
2 Put the onion slices and jalapeño peppers over direct heat and cook, turning once, until they char and start to soften, about 5 minutes.
3 Remove the vegetables from the grill and chop them.
4 In an electric food processor, combine the tahini, lemon juice and garlic. Process until the garlic cloves are finely minced, then add in the garbanzo beans and salt. Mix again until smooth. Spoon the paste into a serving dish and stir in the chopped onion and jalapeño. Drizzle with chili oil and serve chilled.
