I decided to do a test batch today to see if I liked it enough to take to a Super Bowl party on Sunday. Conveniently, I had some of those Costco bowls, and one produced just over the 3/4 cup of shelled beans the recipe calls for. (Shelling took about three minutes after I nuked 'em).
I had all the other ingredients on hand, too: lemon juice (from lemons I'd juiced earlier in the year and frozen in ice cube trays), garlic, olive oil, salt and sriracha sauce.

Here's the result, and I have to say, it's really good. I had to up the lemon juice a little, and I think it needs more sriracha. It could also be jazzed up with diced tomatoes, maybe some minced shallots, a sprinkling of cilantro ... you could put a spoonful of sour cream in if you wanted it creamier.
