    twissis's Note:

    On the same dy I signed up for ZWT-8, I stumbled across this recipe by Chef Kenny Gilbert in a random browsing moment. Chef Gilbert competed on Season 7 of Top Chef & is the executive chef of the 50 Eggs Restaurant Group. It was described as a make-ahead appy & Wikipedia surprised me w/the info that black-eyed peas & tahini are both common in Indian cuisine. Hummus is a fave w/us, this is certainly a unique variation of it & the make-ahead aspect always gets my attention. (10 min was allowed for ingredient prep) *Enjoy!*

      I used 1 fresh chorizo link with the casing removed. The chorizo got a bit lost behind the other flavors, which was a bit disappointing for me since I love chorizo. It was still very good otherwise though! This makes enough for a small army (I put half in a tupperware in the freezer) so I might try again with everything about the same but only one can of beans (and maybe double the chorizo!) It was taking a long time to reduce the liquid so I ended up scooping the beans out and putting them in the blender while I waited. I added the lemon juice, zest and parsley to the blender and the cream cheese (reduced fat), tahini & cumin went into the reduced liquid to combine before going in the blender also. After tasting, I added another Tbsp lemon juice. Served with warm naan bread. Thanks for sharing! [Made for Spring 2013 Pick A Chef]
