Avocado Hummus

avocado hummusOkay, I’m just being honest here…this was a bitch to make! I mean a messy, sloppy, pull everything out of the cabinets and fill up the sink with dirty failed attempts to blend/puree this stupid hummus. It would have been romantically effortless if I was not so stubborn about storing too many appliances, I don’t have a food processor, which just so happens to be the only appliance for this job. However, in a pinch I discovered after trying everything in my cabinets that a hand held Braun masher/blender thing-a-ma-jig works with a little extra effort.

The cool new is; it’s turns out pretty yummy and the salted baked corn chips are nice change to the normal pita chips. Enjoy and smooches xoxo
