Buffalo Chickpea Dip is an excellent Hummus variation if you love the flavors of Spicy Buffalo Dip.
I’m a bit of a buffalo wing nut — I love wings. But I’m very particular, too. Wings need to be crispy, the hot sauce must be the perfect mix of heat and flavor, and the accompanying sauce should be blue cheese dressing with chunks of real blue cheese.
This hummus recipe takes all of the delicious flavors I look for in buffalo wings, and turns them into a much healthier (and easier) hummus dip

We use Frank’s Red Hot sauce because it’s the original. It has that unique “buffalo” flavor that you don’t get from many other hot sauces.
That said, you can probably substitute your favorite hot sauce for Frank’s, if you’re not a purist.
And, for you Vegans out there, just skip the cheese!
