It's no news to any of you who have been reading my blog for any length of time that I'm obsessed with Mexican food. Give me a big basket of chips, a bowl of cold salsa, some guacamole and cheese dip and I'll be perfectly content. I am one of those people that could eat Mexican every. single. day. and never get tired of it.
Lately, my like for hummus has quickly grown into an obsession. I don't know how many batches of hummus I've bade over the past few weeks. But I can tell you it's been A LOT. And my love for the stuff is just continuing to grow.
So what's a girl to do when she's caught smack dap in the middle of craving two of her favorite dips? Well, fuse the two and make guaca-mmus! Or guacamole hummus if you just want a basic, run of the mill name. But, since this is not your average, run of the mill, dip, guaca-mmus is fun and so much more fitting!
This is a delicious, fusion of hummus and guacamole and it couldn't be easier to make. Thanks to Bush's #HummusMadeEasy all you need is a classic flavor packet, a can of garbanzo beans and your favorite ingredients for your signature guacamole. My favorite guacamole consists of buttery avocado, tons of tart lime juice, sweet red onion, spicy jalapeno, juicy tomatoes, tons of cilantro and garlic.
My friends, this dip is nothing short of life changing. It's a creamy base we all know from hummus with chunks of fresh veggies in each bite. This truly is a fusion made in heaven. This dip is great for a snack or quick appetizer or served along side your favorite Mexican food.
1 Can Bush's garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
1 Packet Hummus Made Easy classic flavor
1 Ripe avocado, halved and seed and skin removed
Juice of a large lime (or 2 small limes)
3/4 Cup cilantro, loosely packed
1 Tsp garlic powder
1/4 Cup finely chopped red onion
1/2 jalapeno, seeds removed and finely chopped
1/3 Cup chopped tomatoes
Place beans, flavor packet, avocado, lime juice, cilantro and garlic powder in the food processor and process until smooth. If the mixture is still a little too thick for your liking, add a little more lime juice or olive oil and process to incorporate.
Transfer to a bowl and add the red onions, jalapenos, and tomatoes and gently stir to combine. Serve with vegetables or your favorite chips (I love it with the hint of lime chips).
