In the meantime, the Inland Northwest has gotten a bit of snow. The driving hasn't been too bad (not Alabama bad), but the key is just to go slow, have the right tires, and to stay away from cars as if everyone is out to get you. It has worked so far for me!

I can't believe he wasn't freezing in a t-shirt and shorts!
I was happily inside playing with my puppy. :)
We are planning on spending our Superbowl at a bar just down the street from our apartment. We were lucky enough to win a raffle for a $20 gift card and pick of tables for the Superbowl the last time we went for the playoff game. Before heading to the bar for the game, we are planning on having everyone over for some pre-game snackies and beer (so our gameday tab doesn't end up being too horrible). For the party I will be making one of my favorite dips: Spicy Buffalo Wing Hummus!
Spicy Buffalo Wing Hummus
- 1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
- 1/4 cup Frank's RedHot Buffalo Wing Sauce (more to taste)
- 3 Tbsp tahini (sesame seed paste)
- 2 Tbsp bean liquid
- 1 1/2 Tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice
- 2 tsp minced garlic
- 1/2 tsp liquid smoke
- 1/2 tsp cumin
- 1/2 tsp paprika
- 1/4 tsp onion powder
- 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper *Optional*
- Place all ingredients into a food processor. Blend until smooth and creamy, adding more Wing Sauce and/or cayenne pepper to reach the desired spiciness.
- Scoop the hummus into your desired serving or storage dish and sprinkle with some extra cayenne pepper (or paprika if you are not a fan of the heat... that the Seattle D will be bringing on Sunday!).
- Serve immediately or chill until game-time! Serve with whole wheat pita slices and veggies to dip.
I LOVE this hummus with celery sticks. My husband loves to eat spicy chicken wings, so when we go out and he has those, I often order a side of wing sauce with a bunch of celery to enjoy. Celery seems to always accompany wings, and it makes the perfect flavor combo here. I find that celery has a way of cooling down the heat in a sauce or dip, while still allowing you to enjoy all of the flavors.
