Okay, so in my family I have always been known as the "dipper" when it comes to food...what can I say? I LOVE any kind of dip...queso, ranch dip, spinach/artichoke dip, onion dip, tzatziki, salsa, bean dip, hummus, honey name it...I have probably dipped my food in it. I mean, I can't even eat my pizza without a side of thousand island dressing (you might think that's odd, but don't knock it until you've tried's sinful)! Anyway, you get the picture! So, today I have taken my chances creating this dip I call my Tres Pepper White Bean Dip. I love spicy foods, especially hot peppers. This dish is an homage to Mexican food, using serrano peppers, jalapeno peppers, and green chile peppers. I would serve this dip with some tortilla chips. You can make homemade tortilla chips using corn and wheat tortillas. Cut each tortilla into small wedges, brush with olive oil, and sprinkle lightly with chili powder, cayenne pepper, paprika, salt, and pepper. Place wedges on a cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 5 minutes. Ole! —misschels
