Directions for: Spicy Avocado Hummus


1 (16-oz) can chickpeas (no salt added), drained and rinsed

2 ripe avocados from Mexico, peeled, pitted and cut into eighths

Juice of 2 limes

¼ cup tahini

¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil

3 cloves garlic, peeled (more or less depending on taste)

1 jalapeno, stem and seeds removed

¼ medium red onion

5 - 10 dashes hot sauce (i.e. Tabasco or Frank's Red Hot Sauce)

1 ½ tsp red pepper flakes

1 ½ tsp cumin

1 pinch cayenne pepper

1 pinch salt and fresh pepper


1. Blend all ingredients but avocado and red onion in a food processor until well combined but still chunky. Add avocado and red onion and pulse until it becomes a chunky puree (you may have to scrap the sides a few times).

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

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