My friends at Hurst Beans were kind enough to send me a bunch of beans to recipe test with this sum­mer! Oh, I had a lot of fun Crock­ing with them and I’m excit­ed to share this recipe with you. This recipe can be served as a dip or even a side dish. It’s fla­vor­ful yet not over-the-top rich, so peo­ple will gob­ble this one up! Feel free to exper­i­ment with the fla­vors. I like adding more gar­lic but went easy on the recipe since most peo­ple pre­fer a most sub­tle approach. Enjoy!

  1. Sort and rinse beans.
  2. Place beans (half of a bag) in a 5-Quart or larg­er slow cook­er and cov­er with water (water should be 1–2 inch­es above the beans)
  3. Place the lid on the slow cook­er and cook on Low for 8 hours or overnight (I usu­al­ly just put them on before I go to bed and let them cook all night)
  4. Once beans have absorbed all the water, puree in batch­es in a blender, adding olive oil as need­ed to reach desired con­sis­ten­cy.
  5. Place bean puree back in the slow cook­er.
  6. Stir in gar­lic, rose­mary, ricot­ta, lemon juice, parme­san, salt & pep­per.
  7. Cov­er and cook on low for 1–2 hours or until heat­ed through.
  8. Taste the bean dip and adjust sea­son­ings to your lik­ing. I like to add more gar­lic!
  9. Trans­fer dip to a serv­ing dish (or to a Crock-Pot brand warmer) and stir in diced toma­toes.
  10. If desired, top with sliced kala­ma­ta olives for serv­ing.
  11. Serve with tor­tilla chips or pita chips.

*Note: Hurst’s Ham­Beens® Brand pin­to beans come with a ham fla­vored sea­son­ing pack­et. Save this sea­son­ing pack­et for anoth­er time — do not add to this dip!
