Amazing as a dip, but also fantastic as a filling for turnovers using puff pastry. The key to a really intense mushroomy flavour is using a food processor to mince the mushrooms. I discovered that when I was too lazy to mince them by hand, although I don't understand the science behind it, lol. Excellent served either hot or cold.
I created this recipe in an attempt to make a hummus that my husband would like. He doesn't like the texture of chickpeas. The Great Northern beans really make this creamy without the addition of things like additional fat, yogurt, or tofu - all things I've tried and didn't care for. Since the white beans are mild in flavor, the garbanzo bean flavor still comes through just fine. Feel free to adjust the seasonings to get it the way you like it best. I do not add salt when using canned beans, but I probably would add a little bit of sea salt if I were using beans cooked from dry.
I created this dip last night. My kids love ranch dip with carrots and I wanted to lower the fat and add some additional nutritional value. It turned out great--I am having the leftovers for lunch today. I used Chick peas, but I would think any white bean would work. Next time I will probably do a homemade ranch dip mix to reduce the sodium.
This is the version of guacamole you often see in little taquerias in Mexico. This is great to make when you can't find avocados at a decent price. Serve over tacos, flautas or just eat with tostada chips.
This flavorful dip is perfect for company yet simple enough and light
enough to be enjoyed on a regular basis. Serve it with toasted pita
wedges, whole grain crackers or fresh vegetable cruditees (such as
baby carrots, broccoli and cauliflower florets, bell pepper strips and

Another great mix that makes life easier (see also "my" Hot Mexican Rub recipe #132796). I included this as part of a gift basket for my friend and of course I had to try it before giving it away. Too bad I din't read the whole recipe before making it. When not only the mix but also the dip was finished, I realised it should go in the fridge for two hours or so. I couldn't wait that long and ate it immediately. Loved it and prepared a second batch. This time I had some leftovers and I put it in the fridge. The next day it tasted even better! Yes, chilling does improve the dip! As I wanted to prepare the dip just for myself, I mixed 2 tablespoons sour cream with 2 tabelspoons low fat mayonnaise and 2 teaspoons Mexican Fiesta Dip Mix. I am considering to prepare the next batch without the dry herbs but add fresh herbs to the mix when preparing the dip. I love fresh herbs and I grow so many on my balcony. When typing this recipe I realised that I forgot to add the salt into my mix. I didn't even miss it! That's why I wrote optional next to the salt. Serve this dip with tortilla chips or fresh vegetables.
