One of my favorite dips to bring to a party or have at home for snacking. It's not only delicious, but also a great source of fiber, protein, iron, folate, magnesium, and monounsaturated fats.
The recipe below makes enough for five people, although you might be tempted to polish it off before your first guest arrives!
