Lime Avocado Hummus

My mash-up of guacamole and hummus is light and bright, but also rich and satisfying. Serve with chips and veggies or as a cool sandwich spread. —Andreann Geise, Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

    Everyone loved this! I doubled the recipe and added more garlic (2 cloves per serving) but reduced the amount of olive oil. The next time I make it, I will add freshly ground pepper from the pepper mill instead of taking the time to grind whole peppercorn with the food processor. This is a great dip to share!
