Sunday from Scratch ~ Homemade Buffalo hummus

49er Football is upon us!

I suppose football season in general is upon us…but if you’re in Norcal, then well, you know.

I meant to post this earlier today before the 1pm opener game. I made this for our friends’ potluck party and it turned out great, but I was maxed out on time when I sliced my finger on the food processor and had a near death experience. Ok death is slightly dramatic, but man, blood is meant for inside the body. God knew what he was doing.

Mind you, the hummus was spared, as this was before the recipe even started. I was trying to get the blade situated on my brand new food processor and ended up slicing my thumb and pointer finger (on my RIGHT hand of COURSE). No need to check the blades! Sharp. Real sharp.

So of course I wrapped the lady fingers up in a towel and proceeded to make a big ol’ batch of buffalo hummus because I was determined…and frankly, cheap. I didn’t want to waste all the ingredients or run back to the store.

Enjoy!

2 cans of garbanzo beans (1 can drained, 1 un-drained)

Blend it all together and add 2 TBS of tahini sauce.

Tahini sauce (vs paste) is basically hummus without the beans. The upside of course is convenience- it has lemon juice, salt and garlic already added.

Then add about 1/2 cup of buffalo wing sauce for a hummus with a kick. If you’re a baby (guilty as charged) then stick with a 1/4 cup.

Blend it all together and add olive oil if needed. Mine was too chunky so I added it as needed.

Serve with tortilla chips, pita bread and/or celery!
