Tips to make the best hummus with avocado

Chickpeas. For the best results, it is recommended that you use high-quality cooked chickpeas. You can either opt for canned chickpeas or prepare them at home.

Texture. To achieve a smoother and creamier texture for your hummus, try adding a small amount of water, ice, or olive oil during the blending process. Conversely, if you prefer a thicker consistency, use less liquid. Remember to adjust the taste and consistency to your liking.
