I know you read the title of this recipe, and thought that sounds kinda gross, right? Well, I certainly did the first time I saw it, but I still saved it because I tend to love anything that includes buffalo sauce, especially Franks Red Hot. Plus, I love hummus, it’s so versatile, easy to make, and pretty healthy. I’ve been stuck making the same flavors of hummus for a while now, roasted garlic and roasted red pepper. Of course both are fantastic, but some times you just need to spice it up a bit. Literally.
I saw this recipe right around the time NFL football was starting last year, but never got around to making it for a football event. But I definitely should have. This hummus satisfies the guilty pleasure of eating wings, minus all the added calories (and tendons and bones!). I loved it and will be sure to break it out during the upcoming football season. It might even make an appearance during the baseball season again!
