Roasted pepper and Avocado Hummus

Hi friends . Sorry it took me while to post a recipe due to a long summer vacation ,and getting back into routine is so much harder than i thought.Enjoyed my time thoroughly with family ,friends ,shopping and of course  lots of food .After 5 weeks of no cooking and eating delicious food mom made, all i wanted to do after getting back was laze around and sleep.

Anyways .Who is ready for fall ?  Well, I am not. Not ready to let go off summer yet .Will miss the fruit , barbecues ,fresh dips and the refreshing drinks. One of my favorite dip is guacamole especially home-made with fresh flavors of jalapeno and tangy limes. So, thought of adding the same flavors to my Hummus. This is the most creamiest & delicious hummus you will ever eat. It has the smokiness of the roasted peppers , spice from jalapenos and is super creamy with avocado. Enjoy.
