Buffalo Wing Hummus

Buffalo Wing Hummus

This is part of my continued mission to tap into flavors that I loved as a meat eater. Buffalo wings are one of those awesome bar food/game day eats that I used to love.

While this doesn’t recreate the texture at all, it does get that delicious wing flavor embedded into something you can spread on a sandwich, crackers, pita, veggies, or whatever your heart desires. It’s super easy to make with a food processor or blender in a matter of minutes.

I have yet to try and make my own buffalo sauce so I’ve been using Franks Red Hot for this recipe. I did a little research and found that this wing sauce is vegan, so this buffalo flavor substitute is all animal free!

If you want to experiment, try combining different hot sauces with the Franks. I would keep the ratio the same, 2 tablespoons of total hot sauce, and not go below 1 tablespoon of the wing sauce or it’s flavor will get dominated. In the pic at the top, I  sprinkled some smoked paprika on top once it was done mostly for looks.

  • 2 cups garbanzo beans fresh cooked preferred, but washed and drained from the can works
  • 1/8 cup tahini It will still be good without it, but it's worth getting the tahini in there
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice about one medium size lemon
  • 2 tablespoons Franks Red Hot It's vegan!
  • 2 dashes cayenne pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1/2 cup water If you cooked the garbanzo beans, use the water from that. You can use less if you want it thicker


  1. Combine all ingredients into a food processor/blender and blend until smooth! Serve with pita chips, pita, crackers or raw veggies.

    I made your buffalo wing hummus last night for a party and it was a hit! For my taste buds, I mostly omitted the water, used less than 1/4 cup lemon juice and doubled the Frank’s Red Hot Buffalo Wing Sauce. My tahini was unsalted so I also added salt & some freshly ground lemon pepper. Very tasty! I have requests to make it again–thanks!!!


  1. […] I freshly grated the pepperjack cheese in my food processor right before the bake. You can experiment with different kinds of cheese (I’m sure brie or a sharp cheddar would be bomb), but I like the kick you get from the pepperjack. I’m a big fan of spice if you haven’t noticed. […]

  2. […] add some olive oil and toss it in the food processor to make for a dip. Usually I gravitate towards hummus with chick peas as the base, but I wanted to switch it […]

  3. […] easy, healthy, delicious and you can create so many different flavor combinations with it (buffalo wing hummus for example). This fresh basil and lemon combination is one of my all time […]
