Avocado Hummus

Hummus is a Middle Eastern delicacy served as a dip, spread or by itself as an appetizer with crackers or Lavash sticks. I relish this creamy dip and make it very often. You will always find a bowl of hummus stored in my refrigerator. 

The basic ingredients used in Hummus are chickpeas, garlic, and olive oil.I decided to add a little green to this recipe by adding a whole avocado, fully ripened and thus include my daily intake of avocado in a new form.

An option other than guacamole, that you can use in your wraps, burritos or shawarmas. Use this as a chutney on your morning toast.
