I've been on a huge hummus kick for the past three months. I've been eating approx. 6 oz./day with vegies, in sandwiches, with tortilla chips, etc. Yum!

But the cost of pre-made hummus is killing me (until today, I've been too lazy to bother making it myself). I only had enough tahini and chickpeas to make 1 small batch of hummus, but I had two cans of white canellini beans, so I mde a batch of white bean dip, too. Anyway, I kind of puttered around and came up with some ymmy recipes!

White Bean Base:

2 cans white beans (drained)
3/4 can of water (I used the cans the beans came in)
2 T. lemon juice
5 coves of garlic

Blended water, lemon juice, beans, and garlic together into a smooth paste. Split the bean base into two containers.

Into one container (one half the white bean base), I stirred:

4 T. cilantro pesto (basically: fresh cilantro, olive oil, and garlic)
1 T. onion powder
S&P

Into the other container, I mixed:

1 T. onion powder
1 T. chili powder
2 t. cumin
1 t. cayenne pepper
S&P

Result: Cilantro White Bean Dip & "Tex Mex" White Bean Dip

I keep feeling like the Tex Mex one might need a little something....I might stir a little bit of olive oil into it to give it a slightly richer flavor.
