Author Notes: This recipe is easy to make and it packs a lot of flavor. You can't just take one nibble of this smooth and spicy bean dip. The dip is also topped with a chimichurri inspired sauce of cilantro, fresh garlic and extra virgin olive oil.MrVillalobos

Serves: 4-6

The cilantro, garlic and olive oil sauce.

  • 1/4 cup loosely packed cilantro leaves
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove
  • salt to taste

The dip

  • 15.5 ounces White beans
  • 1 chipotle pepper in adobo sauce
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1/4 teaspoon oregano
  • salt & pepper to taste
  1. Sauce: Measure out a quarter cup of lightly packed cilantro leaves and place into a bowl. Throw in a clove of garlic and add the olive oil and salt. Process all this together using a hand blender if you have one. Then, set aside.
  2. Dip: Place the white beans in a bowl and add: 1 garlic clove, 1 whole chipotle pepper in adobo sauce, 1/4 teaspoon of oregano, 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, 1 tablespoon lemon juice and then salt and pepper to taste. Blend ingredients together and pour into a serving bowl.
  3. Presentation: To finish the dip, place the cilantro-garlic sauce over the top of the bean dip. I also sprinkled some habanero chili peppers I cut into small squares over the dip and sauce to give it a nice KICK.
  4. Enjoy the dip with the common go-to, tortilla chips. Also, cut up some fresh veggies for dipping.
