A sweet and spicy combo is the perfect pair in this Honey Sriracha Hummus that takes minutes to throw together!
I feel guilty.
I have neglected Sriracha for too long. I thought it was only reserved for Asian foods. Or people who enjoy lighting their mouths on fire.
When I was younger, I was not an adventurous eater. What eight year olds palate was? My diet consisted of chicken fingers, with ketchup none the less, ranch dressing with a side salad (omg. gag.), ice cream “bowls”, and brown sugar pop tarts. Yes, my mother did feed me a well balanced diet those are the foods that stuck out in memory and too this day, I still hold a special place in my heart for. Except the ranch. That stuff I can do without.
But as I have aged, so have my taste buds. Nothing uncommon but one thing that I am thankful for while aging.
Honey Sriracha Hummus is not for the faint of heart. It is full on heat, super velvety and slightly sweet all in one bit. It is pure heaven. Especially when you are feeling a bit bi polar and unsure what you are craving. The flavors may sound odd, but Mr HIT and I couldn’t stop eating this. As in, we polished off this entire batch Valentine’s Day weekend.
No better way to say “I love you” than with some fire. Amiright?
