Buffalo hummus is so easy to make! Serve it as an appetizer, snack or spread. I love how simple this is, yet delightfully delicious. I will whip this up quickly on a Sunday afternoon and munch on it for the next couple days (we eat it so quickly, it doesn’t last long) with freshly sliced veggies, pita bread, pretzels or toast! Buffalo sauce is such a crowd favorite, so why not add it to hummus to make a healthy tasty snack?
To make buffalo hummus:
Add the white beans (cannellini, garbanzo, great northern, navy, whatever you prefer!), tahini, hot sauce, garlic powder, and salt to a food processor or blender. Blend until smooth. Slowly add in the water or olive oil as needed to reach your desired consistency. Make sure to taste the buffalo hummus and add more hot sauce if you like it spicier!
Tips & Tricks
I like to use garbanzo beans (chickpeas), or cannellini beans, but you can use whatever white beans you prefer. I also typically use Franks Red hot sauce, or Texas Pete hot sauce for this recipe. You can use whatever hot sauce you want, however watch out for the spice levels. I like using these brands because they are widely available and I find them to have a similar spice level. Make sure to taste the hummus and feel free to add more hot sauce to achieve your ideal spice level!
This buffalo hummus makes a great appetizer or snack to serve along with mediterranean pinwheels or vegan macaroni and cheese.

This buffalo hummus is addictingly delicious and SO easy to make! Enjoy it as a dip or spread it on toast or a sandwich!
1–15 oz can white beans, drained and rinsed
¼ cup tahini
¼ cup hot sauce (plus more as needed)
½ tsp garlic powder
¼ tsp salt
2 tbsp water or olive oil
Add the white beans, tahini, hot sauce, garlic powder and salt to a food processor or blender. Blend until smooth.
Slowly add in the water or olive oil as needed to reach the desired consistency.
Taste and add more hot sauce if desired. Serve with pita bread, pretzels and fresh veggies!
I make this with Franks Red Hot or Texas Pete hot sauce. ¼ Cup of either of these hot sauces creates a mild level of spice. Add more hot sauce if you want it spicier (I usually add another tablespoon)! The spice level will vary from brand to brand.
