Buffalo Wing Hummus with Lime Chips

Hi Everyone!

Big plans for Saturday?  Not me, as of yet, just chilling!  I need a little relaxation!  I am really excited for today’s blog!  I mentioned on Twitter Thursday night that I made the best hummus ever!  If your a Buffalo Chicken wing fan, then this Hummus is for you!

I found this on Food Networks website and I just tweaked it a bit.  This is spicy, healthy and really does taste like chicken wings.  I love it!!  Not to mention I made it in like 5 minutes.

I also made these Lavash Chips, which only took about 9 minutes.  The chips are most excellent.  A full sheet of Lavash bread has 120 calories.  I got 25 chips out of one sheet.  I brushed it with lime juice and and then added a sprinkle of salt.  If you never had Lavash Bread, it tastes like pita chips when baked.

These two, plus a Corona makes a wonderful match!!

Buffalo Wing Hummus – adapted from Food Network

Ingredients:

1.5 cups canned chickpeas, drained and rinsed,  2 Tbsp. liquid reserved

1 clove garlic

2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice

3/4 teaspoons paprika

2 tablespoons barbecue sauce

3 tablespoons Franks Hot sauce (try 2 tbsp. first to check the spicy factor, I added 3 because I like it spicy!) 

1/2 tablespoon distilled white vinegar

1/4 tsp. celery salt

Directions:

Put the chickpeas, chickpea liquid, garlic, lemon juice, paprika, barbecue sauce, hot sauce, and vinegar in a food processor. Puree until smooth and creamy.

Makes 2 Cups

Calories per 1/4 Cup:  40.5,  Fat:  .08,  Cholesterol:  0,  Sodium:  280,  Potassium:  3.9,  Carbs:  7.4,  Fiber:  1.5,  Sugar:  1.7,  Protein:  1.9

Can you believe 40 calories for a 1/4 cup!  Awesome!!!!

This Hummus would be perfect for a Super Bowl party, plus it would be great on a chicken wrap.  I have been craving Buffalo Chicken Sliders and my Husband hasn’t been in the mood for spicy, so I had to make something that was healthy and I would be able to satisfy my cravings and this hummus did it!  I will definitely be putting this in my food rotations!  One thing you should know, to get the true Buffalo taste, remember I’m from Buffalo, you need to use FRANKS HOT SAUCE!  Thats a must!  No other hot sauce will do!!

Lime Lavash Chips

1 sheet of Lavash Bread or Pita Bread

1/2 tbsp. lime juice

Salt to taste

Cooking Spray

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 and line a baking sheet with parchment or non stick aluminum.

Spray both sides of Lavash Bread lightly with cooking spray.   Brush the lime juice to one side of Lavash bread, but don’t saturate the bread, if it gets to soggy it won’t cook right.  Cut the bread into 25 equal squares.  Lay the squares on baking sheet with the lime juice side facing up.  Sprinkle with salt.

Place in oven and bake for 5 minutes check them and flip them and cook for another 2 minutes or until crispy.  Be sure to watch them the last couple of minutes or they burn fast!

Makes 25 chips or 1 serving

Well I have been sticking to my exercises and today I ordered my Chris Freytag 10 Pound Slim Down Xtreme Fitness DVD Program.   I was using it when it was On Demand and I miss it.  The only place I could order it from was QVC.  I miss her kickboxing.  It was fun, I got a good sweat on and I felt it working.  I am having such a hard time finding a good cardio workout.  I have been sticking to my Jackie Warner 30 day Fast Start and I am on week 3, I only missed one day of working out, which is 3 days a week, thats because my workout fell on my root canal day.  But other then that I have been on track.  Yah!!

Time for me to make something for dinner, so I must be going!  Have a super fab weekend!  Watch a little football, it’s the play offs I believe, and make some Hummus.  The football part maybe boring but this Hummus is not!!
