Clockwise from top left: Chunky Hummus, Italian Beans, Mexican Beans. My friend, Laura, asked me for a new brown bag lunch sandwich partner that wasn't boring, old chips. I've been meaning to do my three bean dips before so this is the perfect opportunity. These are ridiculously easy to make and will accompany Italian, Mexican and Middle Eastern foods. The Mexican dip I made up, but the other two were ones from restaurants in NYC and Miami that I loved and recreated at home. I often eat them with homemade pita chips
