Classic Hummus is one of my favorite dips and I love making my own variations of it. This Avocado Hummus is creamy and tangy, and the perfect snack or appetizer served with plantain chips. You can also add this hummus to roasted vegetables, spread it on bread to make a sandwich, or even as a salad dressing.
