Black-Eyed Peas Hummus

The tradition goes on in our family to have black-eyed peas on New Year's Eve.  This year I tried something a little different: a hummus!  It turned out great and it went perfect with the tortilla chips.  Of course, pita chips would go very well too.  This is very simple, quick and delicious!  Enjoy!
-1/4 cup sesame seeds
-2 Tbs vegetable oil
-1 (15 oz) can black-eyed peas, rinsed and drained
-1/4 cup lemon juice
-2 garlic cloves
-2 Tbs extra virgin olive oil
-1/2 tsp salt
-1/4 tsp pepper
-1/4 tsp chili powder
Lightly toast the sesame seeds (make sure they do not turn brown).  Place them in a blender along with the vegetable oil.  Blend until it forms a paste.  Pour into food processor.  Add the remaining ingredients and process until creamy.  Pour into serving bowl and enjoy!
