Spicy Hummus Stuffed Roasted Potato Cups

These hummus stuffed potato cups are full of smoky spice flavor and the perfect little roasted bite for a slightly out of the box appetizer or side dish.

{food blogger} confession: I’ve never made a deviled egg.

In fact, I had a weird aversion to them for many years up until somewhat recently. That’s since changed, I’m all about the ubiquitous appetizer bite now but, I still in a million years wouldn’t be volunteering to make them for a party with all that required hardboiled eggshell peeling (although, since recently discovering how amazingly easy Instant Pot hard boiled eggs peel, I may reconsider this stance after the one I ordered last week gets delivered this afternoon).

The only real tie in these spicy hummus stuffed roasted potato cups have to the deviled egg is that they look alike.

In fact, these potato cups are kind of a conglomeration of a few typical appetizers you’d see on a party spread. They’ve got the looks of a deviled egg, the comfort food satisfaction of a potato skin and the taste/flavor of a hummus dip, all in one cute, vegetarian/vegan/gluten-free bite so everyone can enjoy them.

Small roasted potatoes make the perfect cups for stuffing spicy hummus into for an easy, unusual appetizer. Spicy hummus stuffed potatoes are a tasty vegetarian little bite perfect for a party appetizer spread!

National Hummus Day is May 13th (Saturday) and if you wanted an excuse to throw a party, these little bite-sized spicy hummus stuffed potato cups are the perfect way to celebrate with Sabra.

Now listen, if you don’t looooove spice, pick a different hummus variety. Supremely spicy, the one I chose for these potato cups isn’t for the faint hearted. It’s quite spicy and that’s exactly why I love it but, if you’re someone who can’t tolerate that or want something that’s a bit more appealing for the masses, maybe try the roasted garlic or even just the classic hummus instead. The spice mixture on the roasted potatoes themselves brings plenty of flavor to each bite so they’ll still be tasty with a hint of spice and a bit more suitable for *delicate* palates.

Small white potatoes are roasted in a spice mixture until crispy then stuffed with hummus and garnished with some green onion. A vegan bite for those who like it spicy!

There’s two other random reasons I love these little hummus stuffed potato cups:

  1. they gave me an excuse to use my mellon baller – a kitchen gadget that annoys me with its under usage in real life but still one of those things that you need for that once in a blue moon occasion so you can’t get rid of it.
  2.  they happen to make a great “unofficial meal” the next day – you know, that perfect “let me snack on something small while I get dinner ready but don’t want to spoil my appetite” kind of thing. Reheated in the toaster oven to preserve that crispiness, one or two of these is just enough to curb that pre-dinner hunger.

Sabra's supremely spicy hummus is stuffed into spice rubbed mini roasted potatoes. A fun appetizer with a kick!

So while I’m still resisting deviled egg making for now, I feel like these hummus stuffed potato cups at least make up for that embarrassing admission in the appearance department.

These hummus stuffed potato cups are full of smoky spice flavor and the perfect little roasted bite for a slightly out of the box appetizer or side dish.

Ingredients

  • 12 small white potatoes, halved
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 10 ounces (1 container) Sabra supremely spicy hummus
  • alfalfa sprouts and/or thinly sliced green onions for garnish

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

  2. Scoop out the middle of each potato half using a mellon baller or spoon leaving a but of flesh around the perimeter. Discard or save for another recipe (great in a breakfast hash!)

  3. Combine all the spices in a small bowl.

  4. Toss the potato halves with the olive oil and most of the spice mixture, reserving a small amount for later. Spread out on a baking sheet.

  5. Roast potatoes for about 25 minutes, flipping half way through until edges start to get crispy.

  6. Spoon hummus into a ziplock bag. Snip the corner of the bag with scissors and pipe the hummus into the middle of each potato half, about 1 tablespoon per potato.

  7. Garnish with sprouts or green onion and sprinkle the leftover spice mixture on top of each potato before serving.
