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!

  5. I love, love, love white beans and this dip looks incredible. I’m adding it to my “to-make” list!

    1. Thanks, Amanda. I was really pleased with the photo for this post. I’m still learning and getting better at photography!

  6. I love anything that has white beans and spice, so this sounds like the perfect dip for me! I bet this would also be great as a bruschetta topping if you didn’t blend it. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

  7. I have been searching for a good white bean dip. There is a little wine bar in Philly called Tria, and they serve up a small plate of white bean dip with a sharp (asiago? not sure which cheese) blended in. Amazing. I know what I am making today. Thanks for sharing.

    1. I hope you’ll try this one and really like it, Krissyp. The addition of cheese sounds great, too, although with the garlic and rosemary flavors in this rcipe, I think Parmesan might work well.

      1. Lana, I loved it so much I’m whipping up another batch tomorrow…with the parmesean as you suggested. This is a favorite now, and my mom loves it too! Plan on hosting a pre-holiday cocktail party and this is definitely on the menu. Thanks again!

    1. Thanks, Frank. It is quite healthy and the rosemary, garlic, lemon and red pepper flakes give it a distinctly Mediterranean flavor. Hope you’ll try it.
