Garbanzo Guacamole

This is a lower fat mix of hummus and guacamole. Not exactly guacamole and not exactly hummus. But whatever it is, it’s deelish!! We ate this with yummy multi-grain pita chips. A most enjoyable snack or meal.

Garbanzo Guacamole

1 15-ounce can garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 medium sweet or red onion, chopped
1/2 small avocado, peeled and chopped
1 medium tomato, chopped
2 scallions,  thinly sliced
1 tablespoon canned chopped green chilies
salt to taste

Place garbanzo beans, lemon juice and garlic in a food processor. Pulse chop until chopped but still chunky. Add onion and avocado and process again until well combined. Empty into a bowl and add tomato, green onions, and chilies. Mix well. Enjoy!!

    SWOON! That is seriously mouthwatering. If there’s nothing I like more than garbanzo beans and avocado, it’s the idea of putting them TOGETHER! Love it!
