Spicy Avocado Hummus Dip Recipe


  • 1 (15-ounce) can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1 ripe avocado, peeled and pitted
  • 2 tablespoons tahini
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (adjust according to taste)
  • Salt, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1-2 tablespoons water (as needed for consistency)
  • 1 small jalapeño, seeded and minced (optional for extra heat)
  • Cilantro leaves for garnish (optional)


  1. Blend the Base: In a food processor, combine the chickpeas, avocado, tahini, lemon juice, garlic, cumin, cayenne pepper, and a pinch of salt. Process until smooth.
  2. Adjust Consistency and Flavor: With the processor running, slowly add the olive oil and enough water to reach your desired consistency. Taste and adjust the seasoning as needed, adding more salt, cayenne, or lemon juice to suit your palate.
  3. Add the Heat: If using, add the minced jalapeño to the mixture and pulse a few times to distribute it evenly throughout the hummus.
  4. Chill Before Serving: For the best flavor, transfer the hummus to a serving bowl and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before serving. This allows the flavors to meld together.
  5. Garnish and Serve: Just before serving, drizzle with a little extra olive oil and garnish with cilantro leaves, if desired. Serve with a selection of fresh vegetables, pita chips, or as a spread on sandwiches or wraps.

Tips for Perfect Avocado Hummus Dip:

  • Creamy Texture: For an ultra-smooth hummus, peel the chickpeas by gently pinching each one to remove the skin. This step is optional but results in a creamier dip.
  • Customizing Heat Levels: The cayenne pepper and jalapeño provide the spice in this recipe. Start with a small amount and adjust according to your heat preference.
  • Storage: Avocado hummus can brown due to oxidation. Press a piece of plastic wrap directly onto the surface of the hummus before refrigerating to help retain its vibrant green color.

This Spicy Avocado Hummus Dip is a testament to the versatility and delicious potential of combining simple ingredients. Each bite delivers a harmonious blend of flavors that’s both refreshing and satisfying, making it a must-try for anyone looking to add a spicy twist to their healthy snacking options.
