This really-easy-to-make hummus will rock your world with its taste and awesomely healthy ingredients. Get ready for this quick recipe to pack a punch with the likes of garlic, a kick of lime and a roundhouse of flavors from avocado, onion, pepper and hot sauce.

This energy boosting snack is perfect to whip up in a pinch for your buddies, your family, or to keep all to yourself. (We’re not judging you, at least it’s a healthy snack!)

Servings: 6-8

Ingredients

  • 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:

Step 1

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.

Step 2

Transfer hummus to a bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 1 hour before serving.

Step 3

Serve with grilled 100% whole grain pitas (cut into 1/8ths) or tortilla chips.
