Guacamole Hummus

I know.

Seeing those 2 words together makes my heart feel good...

I got this idea from my latest addiction - Pinterest.  The newest social media website since Twitter... I never understood tweeting (Internet verb).  For those of you who have not been invited to Pinterest yet, what are you waiting for?!  If I could spend my afternoons drinking tea, reading and pinning (yet another Internet verb), my life would be complete.  Go check it out, but first you must try this amazing snack.

This is the easiest and quickest snack you will ever make.  And the results are so satisfying.  I start by getting all of my ingredients and finish up by turning my food processor on.  That's it.

This is what I used for my guacamole hummus:

-half a can of chick peas
-1 avocado
-1 clove of garlic
-1 small tomato
-squeeze of lime or lemon juice
-sea salt & pepper to taste

My recipe makes enough for a good sized snack for 2-3 people.  Please note, you can change or add any extra ingredients.  Some other yummy additions would be green onions, sun dried tomatoes, or even some olives.  You can customize this recipe to your tastes as long as you keep the avocado to chick pea ratio of 1:1 which gives it that perfect consistency.

You can use your guacamole hummus as a chip dip, to spread on crackers or use it on toast.  However you choose to eat your guacamole hummus, you should eat it while it's still fresh since it does not store well.  Without preservatives, avocado quickly turns brown, similar to apples. 

Once you taste this delishish combination of flavours, you won't be able to stop until it's all gone. 

Happy noming (another Internet verb...) nom nom nom!
