Avocado Hummus

Today I wanted to make some hummus, but I noticed I still had an avocado to eat that was ripe.  I decided to come up with a hummus recipe using both cannellini beans and avocado.  The combination of avocado, mild beans, and green chilies made a very satisfying and filling snack! Give it a try, it is simple and easy to make and will give you a healthy real food snack packed with protein, fiber, and healthy fats along with vitamins and minerals from the veggies you eat with it!  Please comment  below and tell me what you think!


1 15 oz can cannelini beans or about 2 1/2 cups cooked beans

1 ripe avocado

1/4 cup chopped green chilies

1 tsp garlic or to taste

1/2 teaspoon sea salt or to taste

pepper to taste

parsley for garnish

* veggie slices such as: celery, carrots, tomato, zucchini, cucumber, peppers 

In a food processor add beans, avocado, green chilies, garlic, and spices. pulse until blended, and then blend on high until smooth.  Taste and adjust your seasonings to your preference. Serve with veggies. Enjo
