With football season officially here, I cannot think of a better reason to make this Homemade Spicy Hummus recipe. I love hummus and the fact that it is healthier than a lot of other game day snacks. I also love it when watching TV and just general snacking.
Hummus is great with pita chips, tortilla chips and vegetables. It is also said that chickpeas can actually lower cholesterol, so it is a good snack in my book, especially if you eat it with carrots or celery.
This Spicy Hummus recipe starts with garbanzo beans, mixed until smooth with olive oil, tahini, spices and of course hot sauce. I prefer to use Sriracha, and while this is in no way sponsored by Sriracha, it is a chili hot sauce that I love to add to a lot of food items.
The Sriracha adds a nice heat to the hummus and wakes it up, so to speak. It is one of the simple recipes that is perfect for game day tv watching or card playing or after school snacking.
