Avocado Hummus

A delicious creamy hummus made with avocados, chick peas, garlic, tahini, a touch of cumin and red pepper flakes, makes this hummus delicious and so easy to make. I love avocados and hummus, the both combined are perfect. This dip is perfect for parties or just to have at home, it will not last it is so good, serve with tortilla chips, or veggies. You will have no guilt eating this, you have your veggie for the day. Kids and adults will enjoy this also. You can adapt to your tasting, if you desire you can add the red pepper flakes for a little kick or leave them out. But I love this combination. The avocados are on sale and a perfect time to buy them is now. So go ahead and give this a try you will all enjoy!!!
