Parmesan Artichoke Dip with Crispy Fried Capers

I am taking part in the "Lifeway Foods Blogger Recipe Challenge" and I am so excited to share my entries with you! Lifeway Kefir is something that I always have in my fridge so I was really eager to accept this challenge, try to get creative and come up with new ways to use the fabulous assortment they sent me!
Who doesn't love a good dip? If you're having a party it's pretty much a requirement to put one out and this one might be your new favorite. It's loaded with artichokes and Parmesan cheese and then topped off with crispy salty pan fried capers. Canned white beans and Keifer make this dip extra creamy and good for you - which means you can eat more!
Feel free to make the dip the night before if you need to and just top it off with the capers right before serving.

Parmesan Artichoke Dip with Crispy Fried Capers
1 (15.5 ounce) can Cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
1 clove of garlic, minced
3 ounces Lifeway Organic Whole Milk Plain Kefir
½ cup parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
¼ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon black pepper
1 (14 ounce) can artichoke hearts, drained well and chopped
2 Tablespoons olive oil
2 Tablespoons capers, drained and patted dry
2 teaspoons minced chives
1 English cucumber, sliced
1 bag pita chips

Place the beans, garlic, Organic Whole Milk Plain Kefir, parmesan cheese, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper in a small food processor and puree until smooth. Scoop the mixture into a serving bowl and gently stir in the chopped artichokes.

Heat the oil in a very small shallow skillet over medium high heat. Add the capers to the oil and cover immediately with a splatter screen to prevent the oil from spattering. Fry for 3 minutes, or until crispy. Remove the capers from the oil and scatter on top of the dip.

Sprinkle with chives and serve with cucumber slices and pita chips.
