Simple and delicious! From Tostitos, although I served it with pita chips instead of corn chips.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, combine the beans, chicken stock and garlic.
  2. Simmer for 5 minutes.
  3. Remove from heat and stir in Parmesan.
  4. Let the mixture cool for 10 minutes. In a food processor, blend the cooled mixture until smooth.
  5. Chop the basil finely and stir into the mixture along with the lemon juice and the pepper.
  6. Serve in a bowl, garnished with basil leaves.
  7. If you prefer a chunkier version, simply don't puree the beans as long, or puree half the beans and mix in the remaining whole beans by hand.

This was quite delicious and different. I wanted a "Tuscan-type dip and this looked like it fit the bill. I really loved the flavor and agree it does go best with pita chips. The tortilla chips I had for another dip just didn't do it justice. Really nice addition to an appy spread
