2 cans Great Northern (white) Beans - drained with liquid reserved.
1 garlic clove- minced
1 T. Lemon Juice
1 c. Shredded Cheddar Cheese
4 pieces crisp bacon - chopped into small bits
Salt to taste (1/4- 1/2 tsp.)
Combine drained beans, lemon juice, garlic and 2-4 T. "bean liquid" in a blender or food processor (add the liquid until you've reached your desired consistency. Blend until smooth. Fold in the cheddar cheese, and bacon, add salt to taste.
*Here's your choice, to have it hot or room temp. We like it warm so we transferred the bean dip into a small sauce pan to heat up. It's delicious both ways!
