Spicy Avocado Hummus
This hummus is a throw back to the hummus that first won my affections. With the addition of avocados, jalapeños, cilantro and lime to your basic hummus recipe, you would almost think that you are eating guacamole, my second favorite dip. Bringing the two together is fun twist that will surprise your family and friends and have them coming back for more! If it is too spicy for you or your children consider using only half a jalapeño or removing the membrane and seeds that contain a lot of the spice.
  • 2 cups garbanzo beans
  • 2 avocados
  • 1 jalapeno, stem removed
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 TBS fresh cilantro
  • 1 TBS tahini
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • ½ cup water or cooking liquid
  • ¼ cup lime juice
  1. Slice your avocado is half and remove the pit.* Scoop the fruit from the shell with a spoon.
  2. Blend all the ingredients together in a blender or a food processor until smooth. If necessary drizzle in additional small amounts of olive oil until it reaches your desired consistency.
  3. Put in a bowl and garnish with fresh cilantro and diced tomatoes if desired. Serve with homemade tortilla chips and cut vegetables.
*This is best served and eaten right away because it contains avocados. It will save for a few hours; To prevent it from turning brown save the pits from the avocados and place them inside the hummus. When ready to serve remove the pits.
