BUTTER BEAN HUMMUS with pita chips

2 15-ounce cans butter beans or Great Northern beans, rinsed and drained
1/4 cup fresh mint leaves
1/4 cup fresh Italian parsley
1/4 cup roughly chopped red onion or shallot
Juice of 1 lemon
Juice of 1 lime
1/4 to 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
In the bowl of a food processor or blender, combine beans, mint, parsley, onion, lemon juice and lime juice. Blend until almost smooth. With the motor running, slowly drizzle in 1/4 cup of the oil, adding more if necessary until the desired consistency is reached. You can make it slightly chunky or purée it until completely smooth. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
