Buffalo Wing Hummus

So the Superbowl is in Arizona this year, and if you live here then you can tell by the mass amounts of traffic, rubbernecking drivers, out-of-towners wandering the streets of Scottsdale, and influx pricing on just about every.damn.thing. I myself plan on cozying up on the couch with my fiance, some cold beers, and homemade nachos and wings. I like watching at home because let's face it, the Superbowl is all about the commercials, and the only place that I can hear them is in the comfort of my own home. If you are looking for a last minute crow-pleasing appetizer, then be sure to show up with this buffalo wing hummus. It's kid and adult friendly, and pairs perfectly with some friendly deflategate vs. 12th man rivalry. Go sports!

Buffalo Wing Hummus

  • 1 can garbanzo/chickpea beans, drained and liquid reserved
  • 2 tbsp. tahini
  • 2 tbsp. lemon juice
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 tbsp. bbq sauce
  • 1 tbsp. buffalo sauce (I used Frank's Red Hot), plus additional for garnish
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp. ground paprika
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil

Begin by lightly squeeze each individual garbanzo bean, until the clear outer skin slides off. Discard the skins and keep the beans in a separate bowl. Continue to do this until all of the beans have been shed of their grainy shell.

In a food processor, add the tahini and whip for 2 minutes until light and creamy. Add in the garlic, lemon juice, bbq sauce, buffalo sauce, cumin, paprika, and salt. Pulse until combined.

Add in the shelled garbanzo beans 1/3 cup at a time, pulsing until smooth between each addition. Once all the beans have been added, turn the food processor on and add in the olive oil in a steady stream. Whirl until smooth, scraping down the sides as needed. Add in the reserved garbanzo bean liquid from the can in a steady stream until the desired consistency is reached. Top with any additional hot sauce and sprinkle with cayenne pepper is desired.

Place in the fridge until chilled. Serve with veggies, chips, or your favorite dipping snacks.
