Comments: This is a hit anytime we take it to a party and our family loves it. It’s similar to guacamole, but with chickpeas added. You could probably also use Great Northern White Beans instead of chickpeas. I have put the recipe I have used below; here is a link to the recipe for the photo above although I have not tried that recipe.
Here is the recipe I have always used:
1 large, ripe avocado, mashed
1 large tomato, diced
1 cup cooked garbanzo beans
1/4 cup fat-free mayonnaise
1 teaspoon onion, finely chopped
1 teaspoon lemon juice
2 Tablespoons Picante sauce
salt or vegetable seasoning to taste
Mash beans slightly and add remaining ingredients. Mix well. Serve with sliced veggies or crackers.
