Mise en place
Preheat the oven to 400°F. Drain and rinse the chickpeas. Juice the lemon. Core and small dice the pepper. Thinly slice one clove of garlic and mince the other. In a small bowl, combine the sliced garlic and ⅔ of the lemon juice. Roughly chop the cilantro leaves and stems, keeping them separate.

Cook the spiced beef & peppers
In a large pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Add the ground beef*; season with S&P. Cook, breaking the meat up with a spoon, 4 to 6 minutes, until just cooked through. Add the peppers, cilantro stems and minced garlic; season with the spice blend. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, until browned.

Make the salsa
While the beef and peppers cook, small dice the tomatoes and cucumbers. In a medium bowl, combine the tomatoes, cucumbers, ½ the cilantro leaves, remaining lemon juice (without garlic) and 2 tbsp of olive oil; season with S&P to taste.

Make the hummus
While the beef and peppers continue to cook, using a fork, remove the sliced garlic from the lemon juice; discard the sliced garlic. In a food processor (or blender), add the chickpeas, Greek yogurt, tahini, garlic-infused lemon juice and 4 tbsp of olive oil; season with S&P to taste. Blend until smooth.
