White Bean Dip

Healthy White Bean Dip

This healthy bean dip is a great addition if you are having or going to a Super Bowl party this weekend.

It would actually be good as an any time treat as you can make ahead and save in your refrigerator for up to a week, not that it would last that long.

This recipe calls for just mashing the beans up with a fork but it sure would be easier to dip a veggie or corn chip in without breaking if you ran it through the food processor to smooth it out.

There is also this zucchini chip recipe to use in the healthy dip instead of chips.

We think it needs a little boost with something like Red Hot sauce or sriracha sauce!
