Ingredients

  • 12 small red potatoes
  • 1 1/2 cups frozen peas, thawed
  • 1 cup cooked or canned white beans
  • 1 (4-ounce) can diced green chiles
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 2 tablespoons minced red onions
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Fresh chives or other fresh herbs, for garnish

Directions

Wash and cut potatoes in half. Place potatoes in a single layer on a steamer rack and place over a pot of hot water. Cover with a lid and steam 6 to 8 minutes, or until potatoes are tender. Remove from steamer and cool.

Once potatoes are cool, use a small end of a melon baller to remove a small amount of potato from the center of each half. Save removed piece of potato for another use.

Put remaining ingredients (except fresh herbs) in a food processor and process until smooth. Cut chives into 1-inch pieces. If using other herbs, remove leaves from stem.

Fill each potato half with a dollop of pea mixture. Garnish with fresh herbs. Chill until ready to serve.
