Guacamole Hummus



If it has avocado, I love it.

What is it about this ugly on the outside, green and slimy on the inside fruit that is so amazing? How about I eat another one and then tell you?

I love guacamole and no matter how many times I hear avocados are the “healthy fat,” it still doesn’t make it okay to eat a whole bowl. Unless, it’s my entire meal, of course!

I stumbled on this recipe and knew it would be delicious and potentially healthier because of the addition of garbanzo beans (a.k.a. chickpeas). I love hummus and I love guacamole.

Combine the two? Sounds good to me!

I ended up adding about 3 Tbls of water. It seemed to make the consistency the smoothest. It definitely did not water down the flavor.
