Avocado Chickpea Dip

Avocado Chickpea Dip

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.
