Come Share Our Table – Avocado and Cannellini Bean Dip

My three year old daughter could live off of beans straight out of the can, dried cranberries and an occasional dose of chocolate chips. After giving her a little bowl of beans this morning I was left pondering what I was going to do with the rest of the can. Digging my way through the fridge and pantry I found some avocados that were a day past their prime, cilantro, a bunch of limes, and eight grape tomatoes. It sounded like a great start to some guacamole. So I threw in the beans with the guacamole ingredients and gave it a whirl in the blender. It turned out delicious on some organic blue corn chips.
