LAYERED HUMMUS WITH MEAT & SPICY AVOCADO SAUCE

Superbowl Sunday is around the corner! And I think this layered hummus dip will be a huge hit! This hummus has four amazing layers that come together perfectly. This dip is creamy and has an earthy, nutty flavor. The creaminess of the hummus and spicy avocado sauce topped with whole chickpeas, flavorful ground beef, and crunchy almond bits make the perfect bite every time! Its light beige color makes it a perfect canvas for colorful toppings such as parsley or other greens, brown beef bits, red Aleppo pepper, and purple sumac. Hummus is one of the best healthy snacks. It makes the perfect appetizer dip for pita, chips, crackers, and all your favorite fresh or roasted veggies. Basically, you can dunk anything into hummus and it'll be quite great!
