Perfect for your summer gatherings and family BBQ's, this Spicy Avocado Hummus is
nutritious, easy to make, and simply delicious!
This Spicy Avocado Hummus is a family favorite and something that I have in my frig quite often. Cannellini beans, fresh avocados, cilantro, and a few other ingredients get blended together to create a mouthwatering dip that is packed with flavor. It takes just minutes to make but can also be made ahead of time. Storing the hummus in Casabella’s Guac-Lock keeps it fresh for days. The container is easy to use and portable, plus the chip container doubles as a serving dish. It's nice because you can use the Guac-Lock bowl with our without the container.
Once your hummus, or guacamole, is made, just fill the Guac-Lock container and smooth out the top.Cover with the lid and lock the sides, then use the "elevator" mechanism to squeeze out any air. Now it's ready to seal and store, or serve!
Casabella’s 4 'n 1 Avocado Tool makes it easy to cut, scoop and mash your avocados with ease. One tool does it all! I also love their Skillet Slingers, perfect for shredding, chopping and crumbling meat! My awesome friends at Casabella are giving away these two tools PLUS the Guac-Lock to one lucky reader!
