Avocado Hummus

Avocado Hummus - Creamy avocado, and serrano pepper, come together with chickpeas to make this delicious twist of the classic hummus.From www.bobbiskozykitchen.com



I was really at a loss when I made this as to what I wanted to call it. It has chick peas in it so it is kind of like a hummus, but it has avocado, Serrano pepper, and cilantro in it so it is kind of like guacamole. Actually when I made it I was craving guacamole for lunch, but knew I needed some protein. I knew I had some chick peas in the pantry so in my mind I just smooshed them together and wound up with a really tasty and healthy lunch.

I really wasn't to sure about how this would come out when I first started. But as I added all of the flavors I asked myself why I hadn't thought of this before. I love chick peas, I used to pile them on my salads when I went to salad bars. And DUH I love guacamole, well actually avocado in just about any form makes my teeter totter.

So if you are looking for a new way to have your guacamole and hummus too, give this a shot. 

P.s. Kevin came home and loved this. Wow who knew I could get him to eat healthy?

    1. Thanks so much I have been trying to improve my photos! I love the fact that by mixing it with the chick peas and lime juice the avocado doesn't brown so you can enjoy this for several days :) Happy New Year to you as well!!
