Easy beans dip

Easy beans dip, that is better than hummus.

I had this bean dip couple of times at a Mexican restaurant in The Hague and loved it. When I like something new in a restaurant I have to try making it at home 🙂 so here is my version of this delicious white bean dip for a Mexican dinner.
