Avocado Hummus

Its has been a quite long i was planning to make hummus at home with store bought tahini and avocado...Today i tried out at home by using canned chickpeas, garlic and lemon juice along with avocado chunks...Its really quite  easy to prepare this greeny tempting and delicious hummus which tastes marvellous with tortilla chips, pita breads and y not with fresh veggies..I can eat avocados and enjoy it directly with mayonnaise, but its not something i usually crave for thats y i prepared hummus this time with avocados...This hummus is quite an another delicious dip to enjoy with breads and we loved this green hummus...All the ingredients used in this recipe can be increased or decreased as u desire...My avocado hummus was dominated by avocado flavour than garlic as i prepared this hummus with two big avocados...


1can Chickpeas (small one)
2nos Avocados (cut as small cubes)
1tbsp Tahini paste
2tsp Lemon juice
2tsp Olive oil
Salt
Pepper

Drain and rinse the chickpeas with enough water, add all the ingredients  in a blender or food processor and grind as fine paste..

Serve as dip along with some veggies or with chips or breads...finally this avocado hummus goes to MLLA-20th helping guest hosted by Rachel of The Crispy COok, event started by Susan..
