White Bean and Roasted Red Pepper Dip
I have had a can of cannellini beans sitting in the cabinet with no plans of what to do with them. Over the weekend I wanted a healthy dip and remembered seeing dips made from these beans. So this is what I came up with. It came out great...give it a try!
1 can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
1/4 cup roasted red peppers (if using jarred peppers, pat them dry)
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
1/4 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
salt and pepper to taste
optional-hot sauce (I used a few dashes of garlic and chipotle hot sauce)
tortilla chips/pita chips for serving
Combine everything (except chips/pita) in a food processor and mix until smooth.
