Avocado Cilantro Lime Hummus | Creamy homemade hummus made with chickpeas and avocado, lime juice, cilantro and pickled jalapenos.
The sun is shining, the leaves are growing, the plants are budding and the birds are singing. We finally have weather that feels like Spring and weather that feels like Spring kicks my need to plan appetizers and snack boards into overdrive.
The next time you have company and need something satisfying and impressive for a quick snack, or if you just want to sit by yourself in the sun and eat 4 portions of homemade pita chips while you read a book..., put together this avocado cilantro lime hummus. Its fast and easy and the food processor does all the work.
You could also make this by hand if you mash the chickpeas with a fork and then finely chop up the garlic, jalapeno and cilantro with a knife. Mix it all up!
Then just grab the nearest box of crackers, toast up some baguette slices or dip in some fresh vegetables like carrot or cucumber sticks.
