Green Pea Dip – 1Points+

Kind of like guacamole minus the avocado. Serve with baked tortilla chips or fresh vegetable sticks, or use as a sandwich spread.

  •   10 oz frozen baby peas   
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil   
  • 1 Tbsp fresh lime juice   
  • 3/4 tsp ground cumin   
  • 1/2 tsp table salt   
  •   1 medium plum tomato(es), seeded, diced   
  •   2 Tbsp (chopped) uncooked red onion(s)   
  • 3 Tbsp cilantro, fresh, chopped   
  • 1/4 tsp hot pepper sauce, or to taste

  • Put peas, oil, lime juice, cumin and salt in a food processor; process until smooth and scrape into a bowl.
