    Yum! Love this with cannellini beans and NO bacon, but you may include bacon if you wish. I served this with toasted pita bread triangles!

    1. 1
      (If you want to use bacon, cook it and drain it. I don't really like meat, so I just omitted it).
    2. 2
      In reserved fat (or just nonstick cooking spray!) cook onion and garlic with salt and pepper to taste over moderately low heat, stirring, until softened and pale golden.
    3. 3
      Add chili powder and cumin and cook, stirring, 1 minutes.
    4. 4
      Add beans and cook, stirring, 5 minutes.
    5. 5
      In a food processor purée bean mixture with all remaining ingredients except bacon until smooth and transfer to a bowl.
    6. 6
      Crumble bacon (if you want!) and stir into dip with salt and pepper to taste.
    7. 7
      Dip may be made 1 day ahead and chilled, covered.
    8. 8
      Bring dip to room temperature before serving so you don't break tortilla chips!
    9. 9
      Serve dip with tortilla chips or crudités.

      I made this a day ahead to take on a recent camping trip. This went over "big-time" with everyone as we sat around the fire talking and munching on this great dip. I used the bacon which gave this a wonderful flavor. Thank you.

      Great sandwich filling for me. Spread it on a Wasa cracker for lunch. I used the bacon, sour cream, and cheddar, because I didn't have monterey jack. Yum! I like this sort of thing so I've tried several and this is the best of the bunch so far. Thank you.
