White Bean Hummus

For this year's Super Bowl I fixed a White Bean Hummus that wowed me. Yes, freakin' awesome. I read through a couple of recipes, but ended up throwing some items together on my own.

15 oz. can white beans (I used cannellini beans), drained
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 garlic clove, minced
1 T. minced shallot
1/2 dozen salted capers
1 t. ground cumin
1 t. dried dill
Salt and pepper to taste

Place all of the ingredients in a food processor and puree until smooth. Serve with red and orange bell pepper strips and/or carrot sticks.

I also ate the hummus with some pita chips, but, honestly, I liked it better with the bell peppers. This particular fact amazed me more than anything else.
