Spice Things Up! The Buffalo Hummus Dip For Your Next Gameday Gathering

Smooth hummus loaded with spices and creamy blue cheese, perfect for dipping with homemade pita chips or your favorite vegetables!

Tailgating, and homegating are my favorite ‘events’ this time of year, and nothing makes me happier than getting together with friends to watch football, and munch on snacks!

Buffalo flavored anything is a must for gameday gatherings, so why not take a classic hummus recipe, and kick it up a notch?!

I love to add in a few generous tablespoons of Santina’s Rojo Sauce! It gives this Buffalo Hummus Dip just enough kick for a flavorful Buffalo-inspired gameday dish! Feel free to serve this hummus as-is, or top with a few garnishes of blue cheese crumbles, and sliced green onions.

This Buffalo Hummus Dip is perfect to prep ahead for a tailgate before kickoff time (stored in a cooler, of course), or as part of a tasty spread from the comfort of your couch.
