Testing Notes:
Color keeps intact if stored in refrigerator a few days, but dip may need to be stirred (just like Greek yogurt ) because some of the whey from yogurt will separate out. It’s only a tiny amount, but maybe worth mentioning in the headnote?
Yogurt buffers the heat of the jalapeno so this is not a spicy dip. But you could suggest people leave in the seeds if they like spicy foods.
A large avocado weighs about 9 ounces whole. After peeling you have about 6 ounces of flesh so this is the amount used for nutrition calculation. Adjusted the sodium figures on canned chickpeas since they are rinsed and drained.
