Healthy, Busy Snacks: Avocado and Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

Avocado and Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

Having a well stocked, healthy pantry is always handy when you're enjoying time with family at home.  We had all the ingredients on hand today to make a simple, home-made hummus.  The more we thought about what we had, the more ingredients we added, and the more delicious our hummus became.

I LOVE guacamole, and I LOVE roasted red peppers in just about anything.  This is the perfect marriage of the two!  It's an easy, healthy, delicious and fun snack for the entire family.

Try this as a substitute for mayonnaise in your chicken salad, tuna fish or potato salad this summer!
