This is one of the best dips I have ever had. Seriously! I am a huge fan of guacamole and hummus and this was a perfect blend of both. I used 2 small avocados and the juice of 1 whole small lemon. Absolutely delicious! I am taking this to a Thanksgiving dinner tonight for an appetizer, if I don't decide to keep it for myself! I am serving this with whole wheat tortilla chips. Made for my adopted chef for PAC 2011. Thanks flower7! :)
Absolutely fabulous! Added a little more lemon to brighten up the flavors. Also a pinch of cumin. Added a handful of fresh spinach together with the other ingredients and it pumped up the green color (and nutrients). The flavor was awesome! Also changed out the sour cream for thick Greek yogurt. (Less fat). Can I give this more than 5 stars?
Wow, this was really good! I did follow other reviewers and added a whole lemon, and a pinch of cumin/cayenne/salt. I also used half a tablespoon of the oil and added onion powder, since Trader Joe's guacamole hummus has that in it too. I loved all these flavors together. DH thought we could add even more lemon to it.
This is a really tasty hummus, and it was very well received by 2 yo DS! My tahini was looking a little funky so I skipped that, and I used drained plain yogurt instead of sour cream. Otherwise I made as written. Like other reviewers, I felt the final product needed a bit more zip as the avocado really makes the dip creamy and smooth instead of tangy like many hummus recipes. I added extra lemon juice, garlic powder, lots of salt, and a pinch of cayenne and was more satisfied. Thanks for posting! Made for Went to Market Tag.
