Remember when you were a kid and Christmas day was all you could think about? I would count down the days to the 25th and try so hard to stay up all night to get a glimpse of Santa. But of course I’d always fall asleep within minutes and I never had a chance to see him.

But now that I’m a “grown-up,” I had no excitement for Christmas this year.

That is, until this happened – major Christmas-present-unwrapping-chaos.

And this.

And I got even more excited when the antlers came out.

Sherman also seemed to love our present – is it wrong that I want my niece to be a food blogger just like me? At least she gets to do it with a super cool apron.

And of course here’s Chandler – I love his cute little face as he watches his parents help open his presents.

But now that Christmas is over, I guess it’s time to bring out the big guns and start some major clean eating. But I’m sure you’ll think I’m completely hypocritical when you see tomorrow’s post – hey, at least I’m trying, right?

So here you have it – a white bean dip with a Mexican twist and some chipotle peppers for a spicy kick. You can easily serve it as a dip for your New Year’s party since it takes just 5 minutes to make or you can eat it as a midnight snack guilt-free!

    I followed the instructions, however, it was not thick, a little runny. I wasn’t sure if I needed to drain the beans before I put them in the blender. Otherwise flavor was great, I added some cilantro.

    Very easy and quick to make, and delicious to boot. I don’t like hummus (I’ve tried and tried) but love refried beans, and somehow I find this to be a great crossover between the two.

    My picky eater gave it a huge thumbs up! It’s a very flexible recipe too. Just saying! Thanks for the great eats – many of your recipes are in our regular rotation!

    I think this is the best hummus recipe I’ve ever had

  5. OK ya’ll can laugh If’n ya wanna, but this recipe has an ingredient 1/4 plus. What is plus, I never heer’d of it.

  6. I aman avid food blog hunter. Constantly on the prowl for that perfect easy but delicious recipe . I have never comment in my more than 5 years of beating the bushes. This recipe is the first to inspire me to do so. This will fast become a family favourite . Thanks 

  7. Thank you! This turned a lone can of white beans into tasty. Very good.

  8. Very good even though I used an olive oil that was not suited for this.  Next time I will use a mild flavored olive oil. We ate this with tortilla chips

  9. This was really easy and quick to make! Nice flavors too. However, it leaves a super strong taste in your mouth afterwards. But it was delicious and went great with pita chips and tortilla chips as suggested.

  10. White beans are so perfect for dips!! This looks fantastic! Can’t wait to make!

  11. Finally made this last night and it is damn delicious as you say! It’s a nice change from the usual chick pea hummus. I added some tahini because I like the richness it gives a bean dip (and also because I happened to have it and it is damn expensive so I better use it!). Eating it as we speak and have been putting it on everything! Thanks for the great recipe!

  12. This is excellent. I did not change a thing and will not. Thank you. You have some great recipes. Coffee cake muffins! Thanks again.

  13. This is amazing! I pinned it awhile back and finally made it. My husband said, “This is excellent. And you know I don’t hand out ‘excellents’ easily.” Haha! Thank you! This is now a staple in our house.

  17. How did I miss this post last week? This looks fantastic! I love the spiciness that you’ve added to the white beans in this dip!
