Does something about this warm weather really make you want to turn up the heat in the flavor department? Serving standard and store-bought ho-hummus and chips by the pool doesn’t technically qualify as a party foul, but why be boring when being bold is just way more fun?

If you’re ready for some southwest adventure, revive this snack time stand-by with a blast of jazzy jalapeño and smooth avocado for a snack break worthy of this sizzling summer.

Jalapeno Hummus:

-3 tbsp Pumpkin seeds
-1/2 an avocado
-4 garlic cloves
-1 can of chickpeas
-3 jalapeños
-1 cup of cilantro
-Juice from one lemon
-3 tbsp olive oil

Combine all ingredients in a blender or food processor and pulse on high until smooth. For some blenders, it may be easier to break into batches.

Serve with chips or use it to liven up some fresh-cut veggies, and kick up your summer from simmering to smokin’ hot!
