No, this recipe does not call for buffalo! It's more like buffalo wings flavor...cool? 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. So...it had to be done!
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!
