Hummus Guacamole Dip

I am sharing a GEM with you today. My mom got this recipe for Hummus Guacamole Dip from her good friend Jenny, of Jenny’s Green Salad fame. When my mom first described it to me, I must admit I was skeptical. Hummus WITH avocados? Hmmmm….but then I had it for the first time on the Cape this summer. Oh…my…goodness. It is delicioso. The flavors blend together so nicely. And the best part? It’s super duper healthy while also tasting like a very decadent dip.

I can have this stuff for lunch with some corn chips and be all set. Well, maybe not all set…since it tends to appear for afternoon snack time, and then again at dinner! I also served this at a pool party recently and EVERYONE was asking about the dip…when it was time to go home, the giant bowl was empty. See, I know what I’m talking about.

Hummus Guacamole Dip
A healthy decadent dip!
Recipe type: Appetizer
  • Two 12oz pkgs of Guacamole (Jane’s Mom’s Note: of course I NEVER use packaged Guac (she smashes up a bunch of avocados))
  • 1 Pint of Hummus w/roasted garlic (or any flavor you want)
  • 1 15.5oz can black beans (slightly drained)
  • Chunky mild/medium salsa (about a cup)
  1. Mix by hand and chill. Serve with whatever corn chips you like!
Several notes from Jane: Above is the original, official recipe. I’ve actually never used it because I just got it from my mom. I HAVE eaten it and it WAS fabulous. I’ve made the dip blind twice and generally just threw the ingredients together with proportions that looked about right. I believe I did the following, or something close to this. This also makes a lot less if you don’t need dip for an entire army.

3 avocados, smashed up
8 oz hummus
1 can black beans (drained)
8 oz chunky or fresh salsa
Salt and pepper to taste

Mix by hand and chill. Serve with corn chips!

    Oooooh I love this dip/salsa/guac whatever it is! Try garlic hummus…it’s ten times better than using original.

    This sounds great! I can’t believe I haven’t thought of pairing the two up together before! You better believe I’m going to start after this though!

    Hi there,
    I would like to try this dip for my party, just missing the info for the salsa.

    Thanks a lot!

    Am I the only guy here? 🙂 This really does sound great and a healthier option than most dips. I constantly scour the net for new ideas as I love to cook, and I am glad I came across this site! Thank you for guiding me to my football snack this weekend! I think I may go with pita chips though…not sure yet!

    • you are one of the few guys around here, so I”m glad you commented! 😉 yes, I love that it’s healthier, I don’t feel so guilty when I chow down – and pita chips would be great!

  18. We had this for lunch the other day, it was fabulous! I made a couple of minor changes, we loved it, thanks for such a great recipe!!!

    I had a friend make this dip last night for a party and it was delicious. Looking forward to making it. It is so good and healthy too.

    • how fun, love that you loved it and that they passed the recipe on to you! I especially love the nutrition factor, too…so many good ingredients in here! happy cooking!

    I am making this for 20-25 people how much does it make?

    • Hi Brittney!

      There are two versions of the recipe in the recipe card above – the original version makes a lot of dip, you could probably get away with just following the recipe as written. Between the guac and the hummus the dip is at least 40 ounces, and that’s not including the beans and salsa.

      My version below written in the notes makes MUCH less, probably about half as much or a little less, so I would double that one (or maybe triple for 25-30 people).

      hope that’s helpful!
