I love buffalo sauce. A lot. The problem is, a lot of it contains milk/butter. Sriracha is a pretty awesome substitute, but sometimes you want that uniquely buffalo flavor.
I also love hummus. It’s great with veggies, pita, spread on wraps, whatever. The problem with store bought is that the flavors are very limited. You’re lucky if you find a selection of original, garlic, red pepper, and artichoke in one place. It’s also pretty pricy for something that’s easy to make at home.
So, I decided to try my hand at making Buffalo hummus using this recipe provided by No Meat Athlete (shared on Oh She Glows).
I like things really spicy, so when I finished, I felt like it was just vaguely buffalo flavored, so I increased the amount of hot sauce. In fact, I doubled it. Unfortunately, this made it too spicy for most of the people who tried it. I loved it, but could only really eat it with pita bread to absorb some of the heat. I think somewhere around 1 1/2 tablespoons of hot sauce would work. It was delicious and so easy to make with a good food processor. If you don’t have one, I’m sure you could use a good blender, but get yourself a food processor – it’s so useful!
