Stove Top

Ingredients

24
spears of fresh asparagus
1/2 c
chunky salsa
2 Tbsp
chopped cilantro (i prefer fresh)
1 clove
garlic - chopped
4
green onions, chopped
6 oz
softened cream cheese (i use low fat)
1
lime juice (i use about half a lime)
sea salt and pepper to taste

Step-By-Step

1Place the asparagus in a pot with enough water to cover the asparagus. Bring to a boil, and cook 5 - 6 minutes, until tender but firm. Drain, and rinse with cold water. Remove as much excess water as possible.

2Place the asparagus, salsa, cilantro, cream cheese, garlic, lime juice, green onions, salt and pepper in a food processor or blender, and process to desired consistency - I set mine to puree. Refrigerate 1 hour, or until chilled, before serving.
