  1. Put all of the ingredients, except the yogurt or soured cream, into a food processor and whizz until a smooth paste forms, adding a little water to loosen if needed. Season to taste.
  2. Tip into a serving container and drizzle over the yogurt or sour cream. Serve with tortilla chips and tomato salsa, if you like.

Tip: Freeze a small ice block overnight and place this near to the dip in a lunchbox to prevent it from warming too much.
