If you are looking for the most delicious appetizer out there, this avocado hummus is for you! Delectable, creamy, and perfect with any veggies or crackers, this dip is the BEST!
Avocado Hummus Dip
If you love guacamole then this avocado hummus dip should be calling your name! It’s similar to guacamole but made with avocado and garbanzo beans( which are organic chickpeas). I love that the texture is ultra creamy! Then, when you mix in the lime juice and the cilantro, it takes it to the next level with a fresh taste. You will want to dip everything and anything in it. And the best part is that you can!
I have used this dip as an appetizer and just for an after-school snack for my kids! It works with just about anything, which is another reason why I love it. It’s not only delicious but super versatile. Whip this up and dip in some veggies and crackers or even pita chips, and you have yourself a super healthy snack! Fair warning, though: once you stop, you won’t be able to stop!
