Cilantro Lime Avocado Hummus

This is a staple in my refrigerator each week! I love snacking on baby carrots, celery, red peppers and cucumbers with this hummus! It's healthy and easy to make. If you plan on bringing this dip to a party or event you can easy double or triple the recipe for a larger batch! Directions are below:

Ingredients:

2 Tbsp sesame seeds
1 can of garbanzo beans, rinsed, drained
2 avocados
1 jalapeno (add seeds for more heat)
1 bunch of cilantro
½ lime, juiced
1 to 2 minced cloves of garlic
1 to 2 tsp cumin to taste
Salt & Pepper to taste
2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil, or as needed
1 blender (Vitamix, Bullet, food processor, etc.)

Directions:

Take the sesame seeds and put them in the blender alone. Pulse until the sesame seeds turn into a flour texture. Rinse and drain the can of garbanzo beans. Pour them into the blender. Cut the stems off the bunch of cilantro and add to the mixture. Add avocados, garlic, and cumin. Cut the top off of the jalapeno and decide whether you are going to add the seeds (the more seeds, the spicier your hummus will be). If the seeds are not included, carefully scrape the center of the pepper scooping out and discarding the seeds. Then add the pepper to the blender. Cut the lime in half and squeeze 1 half into the mixture. Pour in the olive oil and keep it near the blender (you will probably need more). Once all ingredients are added, start blending. Pulse and blend until smooth. If the consistency is too thick for your liking, add more olive oil. If you prefer hummus with some full beans, don’t blend as long. If you like a thick creamy texture blend until everything is pureed. Add salt, pepper, and additional cumin to taste. For more heat, try adding some hot sauce or Sriracha for a nice spicy twist! Enjoy!
