Growing up mami always had garbanzo beans in the pantry. She adored them and would find any excuse to add them to our meals, with calditos, fideo or to arroz con pollo; garbanzo were a staple in our household.
On Christmas Eve the family gathers to attend Midnight mass then we head to mami’s house for a late meal. This year we kept it light with sandwiches, salads and appetizers. I knew this avocado hummus would be a great addition to our festive table served with warm baked tortilla chips.
