Serves: 6


1 can, northern white beans – (15-ounce) drained and rinsed
2 tablespoons, caramelized garlic – available from il Fustino
2 tablespoons, fresh lemon juice
1/3 cup, il Fustino Arbequina EVOO – plus more for drizzling
4 teaspoons, Penzey’s Bold Taco Seasoning – available online
6 pita breads
salt and pepper


  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Place the beans, garlic, lemon juice, 1/3 cup olive oil, and 4 teaspoons of the taco seasoning in the work bowl of a food processor. Pulse until the mixture is coarsely chopped. Transfer the bean puree to a small bowl. Drizzle with olive oil.
  3. Cut each pita in half and then into 8 wedges. Arrange the pita wedges on a large baking sheet. Drizzle oil over the pitas. Toss and spread out the wedges evenly. Sprinkle with salt, and pepper. Bake for 8 to 12 minutes, or until toasted and golden in color.
