Spicy White Bean Dip

Comfort food is food that makes us feel full, warm and reminds us of a favorite time or place.  Bean dip is a comfort food for me...I love it with crackers, veggies and even spread on sprouted grain toast.  It's great for family gatherings and dinner appetizers.  For me, it just makes a great snack and #cancerhatesit!
