Guacamole Hummus

Guacamole Hummus is absolutely awesome. Do you like guacamole? Do you like hummus? Well I love both and the combination of guacamole and hummus is unbelievable! This recipe includes lots of avocados with juicy tomatoes, cilantro, and diced green chilies. These are added to hummus ingredients which provide an incredible array of flavors that are heavenly.

For those of you who enjoyed my Pumpkin Hummus, Spiced Sweet Potato Hummus, Paprika Hummus Dip, or Simply Delicious Homemade Hummus, here’s another fabulous hummus recipe you’re sure to enjoy. I serve all my hummus recipes with vegetable dippers as you can see from the pictures, and this recipe is no exception.

Even though you can serve Guacamole Hummus with tortilla chips, bagel chips, crackers or anything along that line, I’ve featured mine with tomatoes, cucumbers, baby carrots, celery and red, orange, yellow and green bell pepper strips as a way to make this delicious recipe even healthier!

I’ve had my eye on a Roasted Red Pepper Hummus recipe for about 6-8 months and hopefully I’ll get around to making it soon too! But for now, I leave you with this wonderful Guacamole Hummus recipe.

As I looked at the ingredients for a Guacamole Hummus recipe I was drooling over, I realized it was prepared more like a guacamole with chick peas added to it. I was looking for more of a traditional hummus with guacamole added to it. So I changed the recipe substantially. I added two ingredients to make this more like a  classic hummus recipe. I added Tahini, which is an oil made from sesame seeds, and tamari–which is a gluten free, non-GMO, reduced sodium soy sauce. After making the hummus with the addition of these two ingredients I also decided to add two more avocados to the batch to give it more pizazz.

I wanted the recipe to be more like my favorite guacamole so I also changed around some of the other ingredients as well. The results were stunning! Guacamole Hummus was, and is, simply amazing. It took my breath away the flavors were so spectacular. I took a batch of Guacamole Hummus to my neighbor’s 55th birthday bash last week and the whole bowl was gobbled down and scraped clean in nothing flat! I loved the taste of this hummus.

Not only that, this recipe is healthy, low calorie, gluten free, and vegan. A win-win all around. Another great aspect about this recipe is that it’s quick and easy! You don’t have to put the ingredients through a blender. You just mash the avocados and chick peas with a fork or potato masher! I love the convenience of this tasty appetizer.

If you’re looking for a great hummus recipe for tailgating parties, special occasion parties like baby showers, or even to take to a friend’s house or your office, than look no farther than this excellent Guacamole Hummus recipe. You will be so glad you tried this out on your guests. And they will be so glad, too, when they clean the bowl down to the last drop!

When I initially posted this recipe in May 2013, I wasn’t particularly happy with the pictures. I was new to using my new Canon camera so the pictures weren’t as appealing as I would have liked. I recently remade this recipe for our Friday night care group (February 2018). I retook the photos and all I can say is everyone loved this recipe. A couple of days later I took the recipe for lunch with a friend. Believe me, we had this delightful hummus polished off in no time.

This is still the best Guacamole Hummus recipe around. 🙂 I hope you’ll give it a try soon.
