Spicy White Bean Dip

whitebeandip4

One pantry item that I almost always have on hand is canned beans.  Whether it’s white, garbanzo, pinto or black.  Beans are always great to have on hand to make a dip or add into a dish as a healthy protein.

For this dip, I’ve used white beans.  I decided to make this dip a bit smoother, almost like a hummus.  You can certainly keep it chunkier if you like.  Just process it a little less.

Throw a can of white beans into your food processor or blender with olive oil and garlic.

Now add in the fun seasonings like curry powder and Sriracha hot sauce for extra flavor.  If you like it extra spicy, you can add in another tablespoon of hot sauce.  I stayed with one tablespoon of Sriracha because of my kids.  You know how they can be!

If you notice the dip is too thick, you can stream in some water until you get the consistency you like.

  1. Hi Karen,
    I was looking for a recipe and stumbled upon your site, and have been here ever since! I just wanted to compliment you on a stunning blog! It is beautifully composed, beautifully written, and thorough enough for a real beginner, and not at all “elite”, if you know what I mean. You clearly take a lot of time with your recipes and instructions, and your photography and I appreciate your work, and you, very much! Thank you for your hard work, and congratulations!!
