Tostitos Tortilla Chips and Hot Cheesy Bean Dip

by Lois Breneman, © 2009, Heart to Heart

3 cups white northern beans, cooked               
1 1/2 cups sour cream (or part plain yogurt)    
1 cup Colby or cheddar cheese                        
1 tsp. dill weed                                                    
1 tsp. garlic salt
1 tsp. Mexican seasoning (found at health food store)
1/2 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. sea salt

* If you can't find Mexican seasoning in a health food store, use extra cumin for a flavorful Mexican dip. 
If you've cooked a large pot of white northern beans and frozen some, now's the time to thaw a bag of beans.  Put thawed beans in a food processor or blender.  Add the remaining ingredients and blend well.  Taste to see if more salt is necessary.  Heat in microwave and dip away!  You could make a meal out of this with some additional vegetables and fruit!
