Harissa Bean Dip

Author Notes: A simple white bean dip gets kicked up a notch with a few tablespoons of spiced red pepper paste - harissa! I've been throwing it in everything, but this dip has got to be one of my favorites. I serve it here with homemade flax crackers, but any of your favorite crackers, toasted bread, or sliced veggies would pair great with this saucy dip!Jessie May Snyder
