A big thank you to my SIL Bobbi Jo for 2 more delicious recipes to share with all of you. Check out her Watermelon Mojitos for a fun summer drink recipe that also pairs nicely with these chip dips.
I’ve been making my own hummus, still trying to perfect it. I want to try this – I wonder – the sesame seeds grind up? Also, the idea of combining edamame with avocado sounds perfect – it will give it a little more umph – I never thought of it before!

Oh gosh, I love this variation on traditional hummus. Sounds wonderful!
I love hummus and the avocado recipe looks wonderful too!
chips and hummus are my favorite summer snack – but I have never met an avocado recipe I haven’t loved. I really need to try to make my own hummus!
Yummy! I’m a big fan of hummus.
