Recipe: Avocado Hummus

Like every one else it seems, I love avocado. So when I stumbled upon this Avocado Hummus recipe from To Simply Inspire, I knew I wanted to make something similar. This hummus was amazing – it was lemony, it was garlicky, and it was maybe the creamiest I have ever had. We served this during the New Years Eve dinner and my friends loved it.  The only change I would make going forward is add some sliced jalapeño to add some heat to it.
