  • 1 15-oz. can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 23 Tbsp. peanut butter*
  • 2+ Tbsp. Sriracha**
  • 1/4 tsp. ground ginger
  • 2 small cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 Tbsp. honey (or maple syrup/agave for vegans!)
  • salt+pepper
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 34 Tbsp. ice water
  • 1 handful peanuts (salted or not), roughly chopped
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 1 handful cilantro leaves, chopped
  • lime zest and juice, optional


  1. Add chickpeas, peanut butter, Sriracha, ginger, garlic, honey/maple syrup/agave, and salt and pepper to taste into a food processor. Process until broken up. Scrape the sides with a spatula as needed.
  2. With the motor running, drizzle in olive oil and ice water. This will help the mixture come together and get super-smooth!
  3. Once the hummus is processed to your desired texture, taste and adjust seasoning as necessary.
  4. Mix in peanuts, green onions, and cilantro with a spatula. Serve with tortilla chips and a squeeze of lime.


*I found 2 Tbsp. gave a perfect subtle “peanutty” flavor to the hummus. If you’d like a more pronounced peanut flavor, add in an extra Tbsp.
**Depending on your heat preferences, add in as much or as little Sriracha as your heart desires.
