Giada's White Bean Dip with Pita Chips

I finally got around to making this dip that I saw in a million different places!
I remember seeing it on Aggie's Kitchen a while ago and I don't even remember the other blogs where I saw it.

We had some friends coming over for dinner and I thought this would be a great appetizer/side for everyone to munch on.

This dip is similar to hummus, but with white beans. I added an extra garlic clove (on accident), but no one seemed to mind too much. Everyone really enjoyed the dip and pita chips. I didn't use as much olive oil as Giada called for, on the pita chips and they still turned out nice and crisp.

I had a little of the dip leftover and I used it as a spread for some sandwiches later in the week.
I am definitely going to be making it again, in the near future as football season is upon us!

I'm a huge fan of hummus. I'm going to save this recipe for when I'm out of chick peas. It sounds like a great emergency snack! You can never go wrong with an extra clove of garlic in my book!

Oh yum! This is one of my favorite dips! I made it a couple of weeks ago and added some sundried tomatoes to it and it turned out great. Yay for football season!! :)

I just made this recipe for a potluck last night (found it on another blog). It turned out very good - actually I think an extra clove or 2 of garlic would have been perfect. I used store-bought garlic bagel chips instead of making my own pita chips, and that amped up the flavor perfectly. I'll have to try it w/ sundried tomatoes next time!

Ooh... I've made that! It's so good. More garlic never hurts!

Wow, the sundried tomato idea sounds like an amazing add-in.
