Avocado Chickpea Cups

I have partnered with TABASCO® Brand, RITAS, and Avocados From Mexico, as well as Forward Influence, to bring you these little Avocado Chickpea Cups. As always, all opinions are mine. Thank you so much for supporting the brands that keep this blog spinning. #SavorWinningFlavors

Chickpea Cups made with Avocados From Mexico For Big Game Snacking

Once called alligator pears, lusciously creamy avocados are one of my favorite fruits. I love how versatile avocados are. They are a wonderful substitute for butter as well as a simple topping that has made just about any concoction out of my kitchen, shine.

Making a plan for Game Day Snacking With TABASCO, RITAS, and Avocados From Mexico

So, it’s no surprise that avocados, specifically Avocados From Mexico, are the star of these little Avocado Chickpea Cups along with TABASCO® Pepper Sauce! Served with fruity, fizzy, & fun, Lime-A-Rita, these are a delicious vegetarian option I’m serving up at a virtual Big Game Day get-together with Lauren from Midget Momma, Paula from Bellalimento, Tiffany from Living Sweet Moments, and Vicky from Mess for Less.

Originally I was going to make a spicy hummus and a spicy avocado crema and intricately pipe both the hummus and avocado crema into little phyllo cups. But, after a crazy, hectic day, I didn’t have time for that and I am thinking these simple ingredients sauteed together will make for a quick, tasty and EASY appetizer to pull together so you can focus more on catching up with your guests.

Making Chickpeas With TABASCO Pepper Sauce

I sauteed a few simple ingredients such as coriander, smoked paprika, chickpeas, onions, garlic and TABASCO® Pepper Sauce together, added in lime-sprinkled, salted, delicious, Avocados From Mexico and these appetizers were ready to enjoy with chilled, fruity, fizzy, & fun, RITAS!

What an awesome gameday appetizer, Shashi! I absolutely love Tabasco, and the idea of mixing those with chickpeas (and then serving in cups!) is so cool. I know where I'm coming to watch all of my favorite sporting events now...your living room! :-)
