We love a good summer dip that won't melt in our Southern heat. This is our new go-to. Use any legume you like and feel free to skip the ham topping if you want to keep this outdoor appetizer on the lighter side. 

How to Make It

Step 1

Sauté ham in a small nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat 3 to 5 minutes or until crisp.

Step 2

Process peas and next 6 ingredients in a food processor, adding up to 3 Tbsp. water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, as needed to reach desired consistency. Transfer to a bowl, and drizzle with 1 Tbsp. oil. Top with paprika and crisp ham. Serve with chips.
