Add chickpeas, garlic, olive oil, lemon juice, cumin, water, and salt to a food processor. Blend until smooth and creamy (if needed, add more water one tablespoon at a time and continue blending until it reaches your desired consistency).
Transfer to a bowl. Sprinkle with paprika before serving.
For a smoother and creamier texture, remove the skins from the chickpeas by gently pinching them prior to step 1.
