From a package of frozen green peas. Use the best quality green peas you can find. I changed the ingredients around a little. For less heat, use a mild pepper such as Anaheim.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Cook the frozen peas according to package directions. Drain and pat dry well to remove excess moisture.
  2. Add the jalapeno pepper, olive oil, lemon juice to a blender and puree well. Next add the cooked green peas, salt, ground cumin and garlic.
  3. Continue blending, scraping down sides of blender and mixture is smooth.
  4. Transfer to serving bowl and stir in tomatoes, onion (and sour cream if desired for a smoother consistency). Taste and adjust seasoning; garnish with fresh cilantro sprigs.
  5. Yield is estimated.

Made this today w my 6 y/o. Substituted a few things based on what I had in my cabinet; added a lot more seasoning (I'm from Louisiana; we eat spice). Slamming!!! My kid is eating the heck out of it too. Didn't have so didn't use: jalapenos, red onion Exchanged: 1 c. diced cherry tomatoes for the roma tomato, 4 cubes frozen garlic for the clove of garlic, lemon juice for lime, kosher salt for regular salt Added: soy sauce, cayenne pepper, ground red pepper, diced red and yellow bell peppers, 2 cubes of frozen cilantro. -Kim
