White Bean Spread with Garlic and Rosemary

White bean spread with garlic and rosemary delivers a big flavor from sauteed garlic and fresh herbs. Saute chopped garlic with earthy minced rosemary to create a base of flavor before being combined with white beans. You can make the dip as chunky or as smooth as you like based on your preference. Serve it with pita chips or rounds of crusty French bread. This white bean dip can be made in advance and stored in the refrigerator. Keep some on hand for surprise guests!

Pinto Bean Hummus

Hummus is traditionally made with chickpeas, however this version features meaty pinto beans. Lemon juice provides a brightness to the dip. Olive oil and garlic create a savory backbone while fresh parsley adds color.  A food processor cuts the preparation time so you have more time to spend celebrating with family and friends.  Serve with crackers and watch it disappear.

Artichoke, Spinach and White Bean Dip

Artichoke, spinach, and white bean dip are always a hit at parties. Blend the white beans with Italian cheese, mayonnaise and spices for a decadent base. Stir in artichokes and spinach for texture and color then bake. You can prepare this baked dip just before leaving for a party and by the time you arrive, it will be the perfect temperature to dig in!
