Directions:

Cut the avocados in half, mash them up in their own skin using a fork (I scored them with a knife first to make it easier), scoop it out and mix everything in a bowl, including the garbanzo beans I had previously mashed down with just a fork for a chunky consistency. Spoon the mixture back into the avocado skins, garnish with cilantro, and it's ready to serve!

I served mine with Mary's Gone Crackers (my favorite and healthiest crackers ever), and some cherry tomatoes I had left over. This would also be great with veggies!

You can pass these out as individual pre-dinner snacks, or place one on each plate with a little name flag if you're having a more formal dinner party.

Healthy and easy! Enjoy!
