1, 16 oz. can chickpeas
2 ripe avocados
Juice of 2 limes
¼ cup tahini
3 cloves garlic
¼ medium red onion
5 – 10 dashes hot sauce (i.e. Tabasco or Frank’s Red Hot Sauce)
What to do:
Blend all ingredients but avocado and red onion in a blender until well combined but still chunky. If you don’t have a blender you can just mash it in a bowl. Add avocado and red onion until it becomes a chunky puree. If you want a more creamy texture, you can also add a couple tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil.
Transfer hummus to a bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 1 hour before serving.
Serve with grilled 100% whole grain pitas (cut into 1/8ths) or tortilla chips.
