Great Dip -- and I don't even like lima beans! This was a lot like hummus and I made it in combo with the layered lima bean dip -- excellent with triscuit crackers. Two Thumbs Up

This was so easy and SOOO good! I made it for an appetizer before a Christmas meal and it made great reveiws! It is great on Celery sticks and also on pieces of bellpepper ( Yellow-Orange-Red ) and chips or crackers. I will make this again - maybe for one of the church meals I attend! My husband said taking it to a group meal - I might just put some of the dip on the vegtables so they can just pick one up. a good idea.
