1/5 Photos of White Bean Dip With Pita Chips
Description taken from Giada De Laurentiis' Everyday Italian: "This dip is the Italian version of hummus, and in my opinion it's smoother and tastier. This is a staple antipasto with I'm entertaining. The pita chips aren't Italian, but they work really well with this dip." We really enjoy this recipe at our house, too.
