This White Bean Tuna Melt Dip Recipe Is Oozing With Awesome

Looking to switch it up from the usual chips and salsa? Luckily we’ve got creative minds like Janey Schafer (@foodsofjane) to come up with new and exciting ways to entertain our stomachs, especially while sticking to a budget.

With her amazingly easy-to-make White Bean Tuna Melt Dip, she takes advantage of convenient canned tuna, canned white cannellini beans, and canned roasted and peeled mild green chiles to create a warm gooey dip to melt in your mouth with a touch of heat to give your skin a nice, healthy glow. It’s like a recipe for a mini beach getaway in a can, except less expensive and without the sunburn!

To make the sauce, combine the tuna, cannellini beans, and chiles with Greek yogurt in a food processor for 20 to 30 seconds, or to your preferred texture. Then pour the dip into a 9x9 inch baking pan. Two cups of shredded cheddar cheese will add the finishing touch. Broil the dip to perfection until it's brown and bubbly (around 5 minutes), and proceed to exercise your dip-dunking privileges with pita chips, chopped veggies, or anything else that’s edible.

Pita bread for dipping

1)   Preheat the oven to a low broil setting.

2)   Combine dip ingredients in a food processor and blend for about 20-30 seconds. For thicker texture, blend less, for a smoother dip texture, blend longer.

3)   Fill a 9x9 inch baking pan with the dip and top with a generous 2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese.

4)   Broil the dip until the cheese on top is slightly brown and bubbly, just like a pizza. (about 5 minutes) Keep a constant eye on the dip because dishes burn easily under the broil setting.
