Something that I have been seeing a lot lately is hummus.
Honestly…for the longest time I really didn’t know what it was.
But everyone seemed to be eating it…
so I decided to get cool and join the in crowd:-)
Turns out hummus is just smashed chickpeas.
I love chickpeas!!!!
In fact, in college I used to buy them
and just eat them from the can for a snack!
They are still to this day one of my favorite snacks!!!
Knowing this, I knew I would love hummus!!!
I decided to create a slight variation of hummus
using some things that I had in my fridge and cupboard.
(let’s pretend like the garlic & lime juice is in the picture, oh and another avocado)
Welcome my new favorite dip…
The beans gave the guac a slight different taste and texture.
Apparently I liked it…a whole lot
because I almost ate the entire bowlful.
Pig out much???
If you like Guacamole and Hummus…
I totally recommend you make a big bowl of this goodness
to share with all your football loving friends.
But you might want to double it,
because once you start on it…
there is no turning back:-)
And because it is Super Bowl weekend,
go ahead and make baked football tortilla chips.
They are super easy to do…
and your friends (or kids) will totally think you are the coolest!
You really can do any shape you want….
but this weekend is all about the football.
So here we go.
1. Start with a 3 inch round metal cookie cutter.
2. Pinch the ends together.
3. Pull the sides out slightly until it resembles a football.
4. Press cookie cutter into tortillas firmly.
5. Place footballs on a baking sheet.
6. Spray lightly with nonstick spray & sprinkle with sea salt.
7. Bake at 400* for 8 minutes.
The chips will continue to crisp up as they cool on a wire rack.
Don’t you just want to dive head first into that bowl?
