Blue Cheese White Bean Dip with SunChips® Sweet & Spicy BBQ Snacks

Blue Cheese White Bean Dip

I remember when SunChips® were first debuted when I was a kid. My Mom was obsessed with their original flavor and SunChips® always went into our shopping cart – how long they lasted in the house, that’s another matter. She would always complain that we ate all of her SunChips®. I was so excited when SunChips® reached out told me about their new flavor coming out this month, Sweet & Spicy BBQ. I love BBQ flavor anything.

And then they asked me to develop a dip recipe for the new flavor, I was so thrilled. I wracked my brain and since I love the combination of blue cheese and BBQ, I came up with up with this white bean dip. The first time I had a white bean dip (was years ago in Austin, TX) that wasn’t made with garbanzo beans, I was in heaven. Don’t get me wrong, I love hummus, I just didn’t know you could make such an awesome dip with white kidney beans!

First, I’m seriously in love with this new flavor AND this dip recipe. The new flavor combines my love of BBQ flavor and what I know and love about SunChips® – the multigrain taste and the crunch. And second, you can’t get any easier than the ingredients in this dip and just dumping it into a blender and you’re ready to go!

For your next party or family get together or just for a snack on the weekends, this is the perfect dip to go with the perfect chip!

    Awesome flavor combo! I’ve been really big on white bean dips recently. I bet adding blue cheese would add a great flavor twist.
