Dip for Dinner *updated*

I made a green pea dip for a snack tonight...it pretty much became my dinner once I ate a bunch of it and spoiled my appetite. Oops!
Juice and zest of 1 lime
1/2 fresh green chili pepper, seeded and finely chopped
2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
1 tbsp chopped cilantro
1 1/2 cups thawed frozen peas
4 scallions, chopped
1) Place all the ingredients except the lime zest in a food processor (I used our magic bullet and it work amazingly) and process to a rough puree.
2) To serve, garnish with lime zest.
I didn't totally follow the recipe tho...okay, okay I didn't follow the recipe at all, but the recipe gave me a general idea. So if you want to try it, you should play around with it with whatever you think you'd : ) I ate it with Wild Harvest's organic black bean tortilla chips (not the ones int the pic) YUM!
I didn't really measure anything and I used a few jalapeno slices instead of green chili, didn't use cilantro because I hate it, used some onion instead of scallions, I also added some red pepper, some salt and pepper and jalapeno salsa...see, really didn't follow the recipe.
