Cilantro Lime White Bean Hummus...

1 15-ounce can of small white beans, drained and rinsed
2 cloves of garlic, minced (more or less, depending on your tastes)
1/4 cup cilantro
1 teaspoon lime zest
1 tablespoon lime juice
1/3 cup olive oil (+ more to reach desired consistency)
salt and pepper to taste
garlic powder to taste

Combine beans, cilantro, lime zest, juice and garlic in the food processor and blend until mixed. With the processor on, stream in olive oil until desired consistency is reached. I blended mine for a good 5~6 minutes to make it super creamy. Season with salt, pepper and garlic powder to taste. Serve with pita chips!

This recipe came from one of my favorite blogs. Thank you Jessica for always having something delicious on your blog!!! I changed it just a bit because I have the idea that more is better when it comes to garlic...
