"Mmm... bacon." - Homer Simpson
I chose to use bacon instead of tahini, the traditional fat used in hummus, because its rich, Southern flavor would give this a down home feel. The sage adds to the savory flavor and the red pepper flakes offer a bit of zing at the end.

|2 15 ounce can||no salt added black eyed peas (drained and rinsed)|
|1 Tbsp||dried sage|
|1 clove||garlic (minced)|
|1/8 tsp||red pepper flakes|
|1/2 cup||non-fat yogurt|
Place the bacon in a pan over medium high heat. Cook slowly so that the bacon doesn't crisp but renders the bacon fat into the pan - about 20 minutes total. Let cool.
Combine the bacon, bacon fat, black eyed peas, lemon juice, sage, shallot, garlic, red pepper flakes, salt and yogurt in a food processor fitted with a steel blade.
Process until smooth.
Chill for at least 3 hours in the refrigerator.
