White Bean Dip Recipe

My family and I enjoy eating this with tortilla chips, crackers and just about anything else we can find to dip into it—including our fingers! We truly do live out in the country. Our area's so remote that we don't even have a telephone! My husband and I have four children, and I try lots of the recipes I find in Country Woman.
