Jalapeno Avocado Hummus

Spring & Summer Entertaining Season :::Loading Now:::

Did you know?

In folklore tales, hummus is described as one of the oldest known prepared foods.

Avocado Hummus is a delicious and creative spin on our traditional hummus recipe:

Loaded Roasted Garlic Hummus – Greek Style

For all of your warm-weather get-togethers, BBQs, and holiday parties! Ohhh I’m so excited about all of this!

➡️ Rachel’s tips:

🍋 ALWAYS use freshly squeezed lime juice from an actual fresh lime.

Bottled lime juice from the store will give your hummus a strange metallic or overly acidic taste.

We want this dish to taste bright and fresh.

🌱Since there are only a few simple ingredients used here, I really recommend using the absolute freshest, highest quality ingredients you can get your hands on…it makes all the difference.

🫘Garbanzo beans, or chickpeas, are full of protein, fiber, and loaded with vitamins and minerals.

Canned or pouches of chickpeas or garbanzo beans are readily available at local grocers and online retailers such as Amazon.

I love to keep them in my pantry because I don’t always plan ahead to soak my own beans, so the canned ready-to-eat option shaves a lot of time off prep!

That being said, cooking your own dried chickpeas or beans at home is more cost-effective, and you’ll get to choose and control what is added, such as salt or herbs.

Using dried chickpeas or beans (not canned):
The package of dried beans/chickpeas will have directions for you to soak and cook them at home.

You’ll just need to plan ahead the day before you’re going to follow my hummus recipe below.

When I’m using dried chickpeas, I usually soak them overnight with PLENTY of water because they will expand. After an overnight soak, I’ll rinse them off, then add fresh water to the pot.

Simply cook them over a low simmer for around 2 hours.

Your chickpeas can be cooked all by themselves or with garlic cloves, onion pieces, carrots, celery, or bay leaves, sea salt, or even broth added to the pot for flavor.

Don’t overcook them, as we still want a firm texture much like canned chickpeas.

Allow to cool and dry completely, then follow the directions for the recipe below.

Ohh…Be SURE to try out this recipe, too:
