Recipe | White Bean Dip

I don’t normally share recipes on my blog that I create, but I really do love to cook! My problem is I always get too hungry and forget to photograph whatever I’m making. However, I wanted to share with you one of my favorite snack foods, white bean dip with corn tortillas. My friend gave me this recipe last year and it’s a go-to for entertaining. The corn tortillas can be substituted for flour tortillas, but I am trying to cut as much gluten out of my diet as possible, so I’m going with corn. This is a super-simple recipe, yet is packed with flavor. I dare you not to enjoy it!

Then serve & enjoy! :)

Looking for a party idea? Why not host a ladies’ poker night? Ever since going to Foxwoods for the first time last year, I have really enjoyed gambling and table games. (some of my favorite other snack options include guacamole & gluten-free chocolate cookies. These would also be an ideal snack to serve during the game. Personally, I think this is the perfect snack to make if you’re having a party. It’s light, refreshing, and seems to please most people. A fun break while playing!

Not into poker? No problem! This delicious dip can be served almost anywhere, for whatever kind of party you’re hosting! I do recommend hosting a ladies’ poker night though – think Desperate Housewives ;)
