Avocado Cilantro Hummus

I’m a sucker for hummus. I could literally go through a few tubs of it a day if it was constantly available to me. Throw it on some celery or pita chips and I’ll pretty much call it a meal. Normally I’m a spinach and feta hummus gal, but recently I decided to combine my favorite food in the world… guacamole…. with some garbanzo beans and make a Avocado Cilantro Hummus or you could be really fancy and call it guacamumus. It’s kinda my new favorite word :)

Anyway, I made a big batch of this the other night and pretty much fell in love. After dipping some pita in it for a little snack, I shmeared it on a tortilla and then threw on some chopped grilled chicken, red onions and raw corn to make a little chicken guacamumus wrap. It was perfection. A refreshing a healthy dinner!

Hummus is crazy easy to make at home. It’s just a few ingredients including garbanzo beans, tahini, olive oil and then whatever you want to use to flavor the hummus, in this case I chose a ripe avocado, a handful of fresh cilantro and a lemon. Throw it all into a food processor, give it a whirl, and you’ll end up with a creamy delicious hummus.

Avocado Cilantro Hummus


  • 1 15-oz can of garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 avocado, peeled and pit removed
  • ½ cup cilantro leaves
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 3 tbsp tahini
  • 4-5 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp sea salt


  1. Combine all ingredients in the food processor or blender except the olive oil. Pulse the mixture for a few seconds to chop everything up. Turn the food processor on and then steam in the olive oil and let blend until completely combined. Adjust salt if needed. Serve with pita chips or carrots, celery and radishes.

  1. This looks fantastic! Does anybody know if this keeps well in the fridge? I’m wondering if it will turn an icky brown color because of the avacado?

  2. I made this last night for my housewarming! Yuuuummmmy yum yum! It was so creamy and avocado-ey, and the cilantro gave it such a bright flavor. I stuck they leftover in the fridge to take it to work today and it stayed the same color too. :) Oh this would be so good in a sandwich too…

  5. There’s a lot of snacking that goes on here…the guys come in from working on our avocado ranch and sit down to talk over the next project…and food has to be available. Guacamole is often the snack of choice, but we go through huge quantities of hummus as well. What a great idea to combine the two! I’ll feature your post on our Facebook page today, Gaby. Thank you!
