1 ts Cayenne pepper

Using slotted spoon, transfer peas to processor. Process until smooth. Add remaining garlic clove and next 3 ingredients. Pulse until smooth. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Transfer dip to 8-inch-diameter pie plate or quiche dish. (Can be prepared 2 days ahead. Cover and refrigerate.)
