This Avocado Hummus– or “Guacamummus”– is the perfect smooth combination of creamy avocado and chick peas. It’s lightly spiced with guacamole flavors and the perfect healthy snack paired with veggies or tortilla chips!
Admittedly, this dip is not very photogenic, but I promise you it is oh so delicious. I mean, we love hummus, we love guacamole… why didn’t we think to combine them sooner!?
Nick started flying this week (hooray!), which means he is now in the 15-day program (though rumor has it, it’s more like 20… or 30 days). What do these 15 days entail? A ton of studying, flying, sims, and 12-hour work days. For someone who’s had a whole lot of free time for the past… 23 years?… it’s a bit of a shock. But of course Nick is a genious and Superman combined, so he’s taking it in stride.
Since the luxury of coming home for lunch every day no longer exists, I’ve been packing Nick’s lunches. He gets bored quickly with some of the old stand-bys, so I was trying to think of something new and exciting. Nick went on a hummus kick a while ago, but quickly burnt out on it. I was trying to think of some new flavor combinations. Guacamole is always a favorite appetizer of ours, so I thought the fun avocado twist in this hummus might bring new life to an old snack.
- 2 medium avocados, peeled and pitted
- 2 (15 oz) cans chick peas
- 1 cup fresh cilantro
- 4 green onions, cut into 2-inch segments
- 2 cloves garlic, peeled
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- Juice of 2 limes
- 2 tsp cumin
- ½ tsp salt
- Place off of the ingredients in a food processor.
- Process until smooth, scraping down the edges occasionally if necessary.
- Serve with tortilla chips or chopped up veggies.
- Store in the refrigerator in an airtight container.
So. De. Licious.
If you want to be extra healthy, this dip would be great with some cut up veggies. But the avocado in it really got me craving some tortilla chips… I’m still calling it a win since the dip is packed with so much great stuff!
