Lemony Avocado Butter Bean Dip – Recipe!

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Lemony Avocado Butter Bean Dip is super creamy, naturally buttery with citrus notes and is outstanding on top of a crunchy tortilla chip.

I love a simple dip recipe that’s made in a food processor and ready in a few of minutes.  A couple of avocados, a can of drained butter beans and a lemon and you are on your way to dip-dom.  Butter beans are an underutilized bean in my opinion and offer a thick texture to a dip without adding fat.  It’s a bean that’s super creamy and will puree smooth with ripe avocados and a splash of lemon juice.

I like to pile the dip in a bowl and serve it with crispy chips that are lightly salted to contrast that delicate lemon flavor.  This dip would also make a great vegetarian spread on a sandwich or piece of rustic toast for breakfast.
