Buffalo Chickpea Dip

Monday, July 29, 2019
Can you believe that we’re already at the end of July? Man this summer is flying by. But, the cookouts are still rolling.

My husband and I love throwing gatherings. This past weekend we decided to invite a few friends over. Nothing over the top. Just a nice time out with friends. We served your usual cookout food, but I wanted to serve a different appetizer.

Buffalo Chickpea Dip

Usually I’d go with Deviled Eggs or make Pasta Salad, but this time I created a Buffalo Chickpea Dip. In other words, it’s a fancier version of hummus.

This Buffalo Chickpea Dip is basically a meatless recreation of buffalo chicken dip. The major differences is that I didn’t use chicken and I opted out of the extra layer of cheese (shocking..I know).

But like most of my recipes, there is no right or wrong way to do it. You can add cheese or you can top with cilantro instead of parsley.

Buffalo Chickpea Dip

This Buffalo Chickpea Dip is a great meatless version of your Buffalo Chicken Dip. Perfect for any party.

  2. This looks incredible!!! I've got to give this a try

  3. This looks like such a great snack to prep for get togethers... when we can have those again!

    1. Oh how I already miss get togethers already!!!

  4. I am always looking for new recipes incorporating chickpeas. I'm going to have to try this!

  5. This sounds SO good! I LOVE buffalo "chicken" dip and I cant wait to try it with chickpeas

  6. I've never thought to use chickpeas in my buffalo chicken dip, but this is genius!

  7. I love buffalo chicken dip, but I think 1/2 cup of Frank's Red Hot is too much for this amount of dip.

  8. I made it, but it came out a little thin/runny before I baked, so I added a can of white beans (all I had), and that thickened it up. I’d either lessen the liquids or add a can of beans from the start. Tasty though!
