White Bean and Avocado Dip.......


My good friend Mary Ocean Breezes and Country Sneezes came for lunch this week. It's not very often that we get to meet for lunch in the middle of the week, but its February school vacation and we both have the week off.  I served this yummy, creamy white bean and avocado dip with tortilla chips while we chatted and enjoyed the the warmth from the fireplace.
 
Here is the recipe.
Ingredients:
  • 2 avocados
  • 15 oz. can of Cannellini beans ( rinsed and drained)
  • 2 large garlic clove, peeled
  • Juice from 2 limes
  • 3/4 tsp. ground cumin
  • 2 tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 tsp. taco seasoning
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • pinch pepper flakes
Put all the above ingredients in a food processor and pulse until blended and almost smooth. 

After snacking on the dip and chips it was off to the dining room for steaming bowls of chicken taco soup and Mary's delicious blueberry pie for dessert.

I was thrilled when Mary offered to bring a pie for our dessert.  As you can see from the bottom right photo,  I had all I could do from picking up the plate and licking it.  If you love blueberries as much as I do, you are going to love this pie.   Here is Mary's recipe for  Blue Ribbon Winner Blueberry Pie.

  11. How yummy, it sounds like my kind of day. Good food and good friends.
    I wish I could keep avocados that long in my house. My Will comes in from work and sees then on the counter and eats a whole one for a snack. :) He eats them with a spoon. The other kids are almost as bad. :) My tree got froze this winter. I don't know if It is survived. Have a nice weekend.
