This easy recipe I’m sharing with you today is a simply perfect weekend nibble. You can make it ahead and take it out of the fridge whenever you need it. It also doubles, triples and quadruples easily. And, you can adjust the heat to suit your tastes. We like it mildly spicy, but

if you really like the hot stuff, go ahead and double both the cayenne and red pepper flakes. We’ll stay with the mild version, thank you.

I’ve tried my best to figure out some way to make this recipe “southern” and I think I’ve got it! It’s great to nibble on while you’re watching your favorite college football team play on Saturday afternoon!

Name something more southern than college football. Go ahead, I’ll wait… that’s what I thought. Around this house we’re steadfast Georgia Bulldog fans. Have been for more than thirty years.

How to Make Spicy White Bean Dip

Onions and garlic cooking in a skillet.

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion and reduce the heat to medium. Sauté the onion until tender being careful not to let it brown. Add the garlic and cook for another one to two minutes. Remove the skillet from heat.

Beans and other ingredients added to a skillet.

Add all the remaining ingredients except the extra virgin olive oil.

Blending the mixture to a smooth consistency.

You can either transfer the mixture to a blender or use a stick blender to process everything until it becomes a smooth puree. Keep your dip in the refrigerator until ready to serve. To serve, transfer to a bowl and garnish with a small amount of extra virgin olive oil. Serve with pita triangles, pita chips or crackers.

The dip is best made a day in advance to allow the flavors to mellow.

  1. Pinned this a long time ago and I’m making it today. Stupid question….what kind of white bean? I can only find white kidney beans or navy beans. Perhaps “white beans” are something entirely different?

  2. I love the way this sounds. I made a bruschetta with similar flavors but didn’t puree it. I am flagging this one to try next time I have a party!

  3. This is like hummus except it is white beans. I love the use of rosemary in it. I will try this. It looks really good.

  4. Congrats on Top 9 yesterday! This dip looks like it definitely deserved the number one spot – it’s gorgeous!
