Spicy Hummus- Avocado Dip

Spicy Hummus- Avocado Dip

Yield: About 4 cups Prep Time: 10 minutes

I was a little hesitant to use *hot* sauce in this dip, but the hummus and avocados cool it off and it was not super spicy. This dip was a HUGE hit at a tailgate party- first thing gobbled up in a sea of food!


10 ounces of prepared hummus
16 ounces of *hot* Pace Picante Sauce, or other sauce/salsa
2 medium, ripe avocados, diced
tortilla chips for dipping


In a medium bowl, mix hummus, hot sauce and avocados. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Serve with tortilla chips.

    What a smashing idea! Since we like things hot, I may try this with my homemade pico de gallo.

    This looks fabulous! I’ve always thought that hummus needed more of a kick. Thanks!

    Thanks for the shout out Lori. Yes, although I did make this suggestion I can’t take all the credit. One of my guests while tailgating brought this dip and was such a hit I had to ask her for the recipe to share on my website. Easy to make, easy to transport and the bowl is clean by the end of the day which makes it for easy clean up when it is time to go into the game.

      Thanks, Dave! My husband brought this to a tailgating party at the Holiday Bowl and 15 people were diving into the dip and loving it!
