This is a fabulous dip or side dish packed with beans and great flavors. Everywhere I take it I get requests for the recipe. It can be easily doubled, and it's a guaranteed hit! Serve with giant corn chips or as a side dish. Kidney beans and navy beans can also be used.

This was EXCELLENT. I skimped just a tiny bit on the parsley upped the basil a bit and added an extra clove of garlic. I will say that it ended up quite garlicky -- which was ok as I really like garlic -- but add garlic at your own risk. I wanted it to be more dip-like in consistency so I used my stick (immersion) blender to puree it a bit leaving it a little chunky. Was quite thick this way but SO delicious. It was a big hit at the New Year's Eve party I attended. Be aware that you do really need to leave time to let it sit before serving -- I made it the night before and when I tasted it then it was VERY oniony but by the next day it had blended and tamed nicely. I believe it's mandatory that the onion used be a sweet variety; any other kind would be to harsh I think. If you substitute another kind of onion you'll want to cut back considerably on the quantity and maybe add a pinch of sugar. Read More

I wish I could give this more stars!!! This was so yummy -- once you start eating it you CANNOT stop! The fresh basil and parsley really make the flavor so I would not recommend using the dried variety. I also added some sugar -- I didn't measure but probably about 1 1/2 teaspoons. Thanks for sharing! Read More

I made this dish for a birthday get-together and received great reviews. I increased the vinegar a bit added two chopped Roma tomatoes and gently mixed in a chopped avocado just before serving. Read More
