White Bean Pesto Hummus

We have some rainy day blues going on here with a pretty empty fridge and pantry as well as a dead car battery. That’s no bueno when you’re feeling snacky! Thankfully, I had a carton of beans and still tons of basil in my summer garden. You can use this recipe as a rough guide. I find that to whip up any type of hummus on a whim, you just need a legume (beans, chickpeas, even lentils), fresh or dried herbs, and some fat like olive oil or tahini or in this case, I used both.

Stacked Roasted Sweet Potato Enchilada Pie

Stacked Roasted Sweet Potato Enchilada Pie

Oh enchilada pie, where have you been all my life? Actually I attempted stacked enchiladas once but because I used a large 9x12 dish so everything was too spread out with only one layer of filling.
