I’ve been meaning to make a white bean dip for quite some time.  I even bought the cannellini beans a while back, but just never got around to it.  Flash forward to now… I recently purchased a bag of Archer Farms Garlic Rosemary Baked Chips.  These are just liked Baked Lays, but with gourmet flavors.  I was first turned onto this line of chips by my friend Jamie.  She introduced me to the black pepper & salt variety.  I had been purchasing Archer Farms blue corn chips for a while, but never tried any of their other flavors.

For those of you who don’t know, the Archer Farms line is Target’s gourmet packaged food.  All the Targets I shop at here in Nashville have a pretty large expanded food section.  I’m talking frozen food and everything.  They aren’t SuperTargets, though we do have one, it’s just about 25 miles southeast of town, so I’ve never been.

Back to the food…  The Garlic Rosemary chips were really good, just a really strong distinct flavor.  Luckily this means you don’t want to consume the whole bag in one sitting.  I knew when I first ate some, they were a chip that would compliment something well.  What exactly they would compliment I wasn’t quite sure.  On this lazy Sunday while watching the Titans, I finally decided to make the white bean dip and eat them with the chips!  I browsed the Food Blog Search and came across this recipe and used it as my inspiration. I eyeballed the ingredients and made it using my magic bullet blender.
