Buffalo Hummus

No, this recipe does not call for buffalo! It's more like buffalo wings I actually sampled some buffalo hummus at Costco the other day and it was pretty tasty. Then my hubby went back for something I had forgotten and came home with two big bottles of hot sauce. had to be done!

Buffalo Hummus
3 c. cooked chickpeas*
3/4-1 c. water
1/4 c. tahini
2 T. lemon juice, optional (I always omit)
2 T. olive oil
2-3 T. hot sauce (I used Frank's Hot Sauce) + more for garnish
2-3 cloves garlic
1 t. kosher salt (or table salt to taste)

*I soaked and cooked my own chickpeas, but canned work too. If you use canned, reduce the salt by about half.

Throw all ingredients into a high power blender (or food processor).

 Blend until smooth.
 Spread in a bowl, cover and refrigerate, OR.....
 ...serve right away with additional hot sauce on top.

This is so good. Enjoy!


  1. This looks delicious. I can say that, being from Buffalo, I'm glad you picked Franks! Yum!

  2. Thanks, Amy! I can't say that I'm much of a hot sauce connoisseur so I trust you! :) My hubby ate this all up. It was dang tasty. Thanks for visitng.
