White Bean Dip

Screen Shot 2016-07-03 at 9.07.49 AMHere is an easy but delicious white bean dip you will have to make for your next get-together!  The spices and cheese make this dip full of flavor, with the added creaminess that balances out the spice! This is a dip that can also be made ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator if needed.  We had purchased a package of Amana cheese curds that needed to be used up, so we came up with this concoction. We try to support local business if we can.  The curds alone are so creamy and delicious!

(Note: a basic food processor is needed for this recipe, we recommend buying one if you don’t have one already!)

Grocery List
1 15.5 ounce great northern beans (drained/ rinsed)
2 ounces softened cream cheese
1/3 cup sour cream
1/3 cup of cheddar cheese curds (We used Amana cheese curds, they are white in color)
1/3 cup Wisconsin shredded sharp cheddar cheese
2 tablespoons diced jalapeños (We used from a jar and the tamed version)
1-2 tablespoons whole milk
1 teaspoon minced fresh garlic (jar)
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon Old El Paso taco seasoning
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon crushed black pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Red pepper flakes + shredded sharp cheddar + crumbled cheese curds for serving

Drain juice from beans and rinse with cold water. Place all ingredients in a food processor and mix until you get a smooth texture. Place dip in a serving bowl and garnish with red pepper flakes. Top with some shredded sharp cheddar and crumbled cheddar cheese curds.  Serve with tortilla chips! Pair this dip with a pale ale! IMG_3727 IMG_1579 IMG_1582
