Avocado Hummus

Whoever came up with the idea of combining avocados and chickpeas in a dip is a genius. It’s like adding the creaminess of hummus to your favorite guacamole. Or is it like adding the creaminess of guacamole to your hummus? Either way, the result is a delicious and super creamy treat that’s the perfect dip to pair with vegetables, pita chips, pretzel chips, or whatever you desire 🙂
