Buffalo Hummus

One thing that I love for lunch or snacks is hummus. It tastes delicious, is easy to make and is full of protein from the chick peas. I came across this recipe that combined hummus with the flavors of buffalo wings! How can you go wrong with that combination?! Essentially, the hot sauce that you add gives the hummus the heat you would get from wings. Serve it with some veggies, on a sandwich or crackers and its a great dish. Another excuse to make this is that only uses 1 pan, the blender, which makes clean up that much easier.

Buffalo Hummus
Yields: 2 cups
Recipe from The Sweets Life

1 can garbanzo beans (chickpeas), drained and rinsed (1/4 cup liquid reserved)
2 cloves garlic
1/8 cup tahini
1/8 cup fresh lemon juice
3/4 tsp paprika
1 Tbsp barbecue sauce
2-3 Tbsp hot sauce depending on how hot you like it (I used Frank's buffalo sauce)
1/2 Tbsp distilled white vinegar
3/4 tsp kosher salt

1. Add the chickpeas, chickpea liquid, garlic, tahini, lemon juice, paprika, barbecue sauce, hot sauce, vinegar, and salt in the bowl of a food processor or blender. Puree until smooth and creamy. If it is a little bit thick, add some olive oil slowly to thin it out.

Pin It!
