It’s ridiculously tasty and so, so easy. Like, so simple I’m not sure why homemade hummus hasn’t been on my radar for years.

The truth is, I’m a little new to the hummus party. When it first started gaining popularity, I didn’t really see the attraction to it, especially when chips and salsa–the snack of snacks–was available in excess.

Finally, I was convinced to split a hummus trio with a few people at a restaurant, and my naive eyes were opened to a whole new world of flavors, namely roasted red pepper, chipotle, and tomato basil. They were seriously killer. Plus, how could I, a self-proclaimed carb-o-holic, turn down anything I could dip bread in? #breadislife

I’ve been on the hummus bandwagon ever since, and, you know what? I don’t hate it.

Lemon and pepper go together like Oreos and peanut butter.

Put the four things together and you’ve got the king of snacks (sorry chips and salsa, you’ve been temporarily replaced).

Truthfully, all hummus takes to make is just a handful of ingredients blended in a food processor. It’s fast, it’s packed with protein, and it’s delish (On a side note, every single time I type in ‘delish,’ autocorrect tries to switch it to ‘relish.’ I don’t relish the prospect of having to change delish every time, autocorrect. See what I did there? … Ha. Ha. Ha?).

Moving on, because I’m rambling about obnoxiously corny jokes, I think you’ll love this fun take on hummus! It’s different than the norm, but if you adore avocado, I think you’ll find this a huge win!

Ooooh. And the pita chips! I ate a plate full.

    Chipotle and tomato basil, amen! I don’t even look at the serving sizes on hummus containers; they make me depressed lol. I love love love hummus in every form but this avocado and lemon pepper … I can’t even! It looks so good right now. Ugh, late night cravings, why? Fantastic job!
