Roasted Jalapeño White Bean Dip

Updated: Apr 28, 2021

Does anyone else occasionally replace meals with appetizers or snacks? Dip for dinner woohoo!! A fun spin on hummus using tender cannellini or white kidney beans and fiery roasted jalapeños. BONUS: chips and dip = (unintentionally) #vegan. If spice isn’t your thing, you can replace the jalapeños with good ol’ green bell peppers or deseeded poblano peppers. I wouldn’t if I were you though - there’s something crazy addicting about the taste of roasted jalapeño.

Makes 4 servings


For the Dip

2 jalapeño peppers, deseeded, roughly chopped

1/2 red onion, roughly chopped

3 cloves garlic, crushed or roughly chopped

3 tbs olive oil

1 can (540 ml) white kidney beans/ cannellini beans, rinsed

1 tbs tahini paste

Juice of 1 lime or lemon

2 tbs green onion, sliced thin, divided

For the topping

4 cherry tomatoes, finely diced

1 tbs red onion, finely chopped

1 tbs green onion, finely sliced

2 tbs avocado, finely diced

1 tbs cilantro, finely chopped

1 tsp olive oil

For the Chips

2 pita breads, cut into triangles

1 tbs olive oil,

salt and pepper


1. Preheat the oven to 450 F. Toss the jalapeños, 1/4 red onion, and garlic in a little bit of olive oil and salt and pepper. Lay on a sheet pan lined with foil and roast for 15-20 mins, until dark blisters start forming.

2. Add the roasted vegetables to a food processor with white beans, tahini, lemon juice, and 3 tbs olive oil. Grind until completely smooth and creamy, about 2-3 minutes. Stir in a healthy pinch of salt and pepper, and 2 tbs sliced green onion.

2. Transfer dip to a bowl and let it set in the fridge while you prepare the topping and chips. For the topping, add all the ingredients in a bowl and stir to. Set aside.

3. Toss the pita triangles in olive oil, salt, and pepper. You can season with a dash of paprika, garlic salt, and onion salt as well if you wish. Put in the aryfrer basket and airfry for 7 minutes at 350 F. Shake once during during cooking.

4. When ready to serve, spoon the topping on top of the dip, and drizzle with a touch more olive oil. Serve with pita chips and vegetables of your choice.
