When I was growing up, "bean dip" was the stuff in the yellow Frito-Lay can.
Speaking of bean dip from the past, here's an old commercial that features a 1960s homemaker being

White Bean with Garlic Dip became a favorite with my family almost immediately. It's fast, simple, has a great flavor, and is delicious with lots of different kinds of crackers and veggies. It's also low in fat, high in fiber, and vegetarian/vegan-friendly. Something for everyone!
White Bean and Garlic Dip
2 cans ( 15 oz.) cannellini or great northern beans, rinsed and drained
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
1 teaspoon jarred roasted garlic
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Combine all ingredients in a food processor. Process until smooth. Serve with your favorite crackers, veggies, pita chips, kale chips, etc. I even liked it on apple slices! It would be good as a sandwich spread, too.
The dip tastes best if you allow the flavors to mingle for a bit- an hour in the fridge, or even overnight.
