Author Cesar Diaz


  • 1 15 oz can chick peas, well drained
  • 2 ripe Hass avocados cored and peeled
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil plus more for serving if desired
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp tahini
  • 4 Tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon chopped garlic
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/8 tsp cumin
  • 1 tablespoon of Chipotles in adobo sauce or dried chipotle flakes


  1. Mix the chick peas, olive oil, garlic, lime juice, tahini and cilantro in the food processor and pulse 10-15 times until smooth.
  2. Add the avocados and cumin and chipotle and mix until smooth.
  3. Add salt and some pepper to taste.
  4. Serve and sprinkle with fresh, chopped cilantro and chipotle flakes for a little bit of extra heat.
  5. If you are serving this for the whole family don't add the chipotle, serve in individual portions and each person can add the chipotle flakes to their hummus to give it the desired heat.
