The Lovely Cupboard: Avocado Hummus

The Lovely Cupboard: Avocado Hummus
I've seen avocado hummus at the store lately and thought, "I need to make that." Then I'd forget until I saw it again the next time. This happened my last four trips to store. This week, I listened to the little avocados calling my name in the produce section, and gave it a try. Oh man, you guys. This is my new addiction!! There are several variations of this dip out there. Cooking Instructions: 1. -1 can of white beans, drained and rinsed -1 avocado, cubed -juice from 1/2 of a lime -1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon of olive oil (a lower fat option: substitute oil for juice from the beans) -1/2 teaspoon sea salt -1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper 2. I really love hummus, and I would even eat a rice cake if you put an avocado on it. I've purchased several variations of Pretzel Crisps before, but this was the first time I'd tried them with hummus. I think I could live off of chips and dip...Seriously.
