What you need:

2 cups canned chickpeas, drained and rinsed
2 avocados, pitted and peeled
¼ cup lime juice (about 2 limes)
1 tablespoon olive oil 
2 tablespoons tahini
2 cloves garlic, peeled
¾ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon black pepper
¼ cup fresh cilantro, roughly chopped, for garnish 
½ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes, for garnish 
Tortilla chips, crackers, pita triangles, or vegetables, for serving

What you do:

  1. To a food processor, add chickpeas, avocados, lime juice, oil, tahini, garlic, salt, and pepper and blend until completely smooth and creamy, stopping to scrape sides as needed.
  2. Scoop dip into a bowl and garnish with cilantro and red pepper flakes. Serve with tortilla chips, crackers, pita triangles, and vegetables for dipping.
