Red Beet and White Bean Hummus


 I have been attempting to make healthy snacks for my kids when they get home from school everyday and this was a definite winner.  I have made Beet Hummus before , but I kind of just did my own thing and didn't really use an exact recipe.  I found this recipe that uses white beans instead of chickpeas and decided to give it a try.  It was very good and my kids enjoyed it!
 I made my own whole wheat Pita Chips to go with the hummus.  I like Trader Joe's whole wheat pitas because they only contain 4 ingredients and are not full of preservatives and additives.  I just cut them into triangles, spray them with a little cooking spray, season with salt and garlic powder and bake them at 400 degrees until crisp and browned.
