  • Add the tahini and lemon juice to a food processor and process about 1 minute to combine.
  • Add Buffalo sauce and garlic and process again about a minute or so.
  • With the processor running, slowly add the blue cheese, parsley, habanero peppers and seasonings. Process for another minute or so.
