Avocado Chickpea Dip with Baked Pita Bread

 

Avocado Chickpea Dip with Baked Pita Bread

If you love hummus and you love guacamole, you are going to love this dip! It’s super-easy and super-quick -- in under 30 minutes I have a great appetizer or snack ready to go for the whole family. I like to serve it with baked pita, corn chips, carrot sticks, and/or cucumbers, and I also add it to our sandwiches sometimes.
