Avocado Cilantro Hummus

Its almost avocado season for us again! We were given this great recipe book for what to do with our over flowing abundance of avocados and I made this recipe with frozen avocado from last year. Truthfully, we have become avocado snobs, so anytime I use frozen avocado it has to be enhanced pretty heavily for our now snobbish taste. I feel like this happens anytime you have the real deal, like how home made pasta trumps all? 

1 Avocado, chopped
1-15oz can garbanzo beans, drained
4 tsp.Tahini
1/2 cup Olive oil
1/3 bunch of Cilantro
1 Jalapeno, seeded
Juice of 1/2 Lemon
Tapatio, to taste
Salt, to taste

Puree ingredients in food processor. I used a blender since my food processor is baby food sized, I may need to change that. My blender struggled a bit and I ended up adding more oil and tahini to help my blender out. And so my hummus wasn't a true smooth and creamy hummus. It was more of a thick dip. But I still loved and totally recommend it!
