Boar’s Head Sweet Chili Garlic Hummus (Copycat)

This copycat Boar’s Head Sweet Chili Garlic Hummus recipe is totally irresistible. Sriracha, maple syrup, and garlic create the perfect combination of hot, tangy, and sweet! Oil-free, gluten-free, and vegan!

  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: 8 servings 1x


  • 1 (15-ounce) can of low-sodium or no salt added chickpeas
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 3 tablespoons tahini (I love SoCo Tahini)
  • 2 Tablespoons distilled white vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon Sriracha
  • 1 Tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt or to taste


  1. Drain the chickpeas and save the juice for adding at the end of the recipe.
  2. NOTE: Reserve at least 3-4 Tbsp of chickpea liquid to use during blending.
  3. Place the garlic into the food processor and chop it up until it’s fairly fine.
  4. Add the chickpeas, tahini, vinegar, Sriracha, maple syrup, and 1-2 Tbsp of the chickpea liquid and blend until everything is smooth and creamy. Stop and scrape down the sides and bottom of the food processor if needed.
  5. NOTE: If you desire a thinner consistency add 1 Tbsp of the chickpea liquid at a time while blending.
  6. Taste and season with salt as needed then process once to combine.
  7. Serve with healthy crackers, whole wheat pita, veggies, bowls, or burgers.
  8. Leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator for 1-2 weeks.


Place leftovers in a covered container and store it in the refrigerator for 1-2 weeks.

You can freeze hummus for up to 3 months, however the less time it spends in the freezer the better. It can lose flavor and texture over time in the freezer.

Taste and adjust the seasonings as you like. Add more sriracha for heat, maple syrup for sweetness, or vinegar for more zing and brightness.

Sweet Chili Garlic Hummus is better once it has been refrigerated because it will thicken up and the flavors become more instense. (my personal preference)

This hummus recipe is much lower in fat than what you find in the store. But, you can leave out the tahini if you desire.
