Tuna mousse/pate

From Chocolate and Zucchini-This is so easy and delicious-I could barely get it into the refrigerator to chill for 30 minutes!

1 6 oz. can or jar of good quality tuna, in oil, drained

1 small shallot, quartered

1/2 crisp green apple, cored, seeded and quartered

2 T. freshly squeeze lime juice

1/4 cup fresh cheese, ricotta, cream cheese or goat cheese

1/4-1/2 t. chile powder

1 /4 t. EACH good salt and freshly ground pepper

Combine all ingredients in the food processor and process until smooth. Season to taste. Transfer to an airtight container and chill 30 minutes or up to one day. Serve with crackers, baguette slices or vegetable sticks.
