I love both guacamole and hummus, really. They are similar in a lot of ways I've come to realize. Both are easy to make, and pretty inexpensive if in season for the avacados. They are great as dip (solo or layered) for chips or crackers. Excellent on sandwhiches/wraps as spreads. Everyone at parties loves them and it's usually the first snack to disappear.

Heck, you can just eat that stuff by itself. Or is that just me?... guys? Hehe

So, which do you prefer? How much of it do you eat? What is your recipe?

Both are equally wonderful. It just depends on what cuisine I'm in the mood for. I've been more on a guac kick lately.

My homemade guac is very simple. Just mashed avocados with a dash of lemon to moisten, fresh cracked black pepper, and a hint of salt. I like fancier guac, too, but when I make it myself, I stay very basic.

I've made hummus before, but it's never as good as that made by local outfits and bought commercially, here.

I use both for many things...dips, spreads, condiments.

Hummus is OK, but I love guacomole. The trick is planning 4 days ahead for a rock hard one. I had good success putting some in a paper bag with a ripe banana to speed up ripening.
I like it with a half a lime juice, salt, pepper and a bit of mayo and chili powder...not enough to mask the delicate taste of the avocado. Just mash it with a fork so it's a bit lumpy.

Exactly the opposite.

I tried to get into hummus (seems to be all the rage these days) but got tired of t really fast. I'll take a good guacamole any day of the week.

I like guacamole without sour cream and hummus, but the latter wins 1st place.

I love both, and can happily eat either one as a dip, spread on a veggie sandwich or as a side dish.
