A Really different, refreshing way to eat guacamole. The addition of baby peas adds an unusual, fresh, sweeter taste to the guacamole. And the peas add a little more fiber as well as decreasing the calories in the guacamole. Try it for Cinco De Mayo–it’s sure to become everyone’s favorite!
GREEN PEA GUACAMOLE
8 ounces frozen baby peas
1/2 large or 1 whole small avocado
1 jalapeno pepper (seeded and de-ribbed for less hotness)
1-2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
juice from a half of a lemon or lime,
Sea salt, to taste
fresh ground black pepper
1/4 tsp cumin
2 Tsbs chopped cilantro
1 garlic clove, minced
1 Roma tomato, diced
1/4 cup to 1/2 cup minced red onion
2 Tbsp of plain yogurt or sour cream if desired for a more creamy texture
Combine all ingredients in a food processor and ‘chop’ until combined. Does not need to be well blended, can be chunky. Enjoy with chips or better yet, slice up some cucumber, zucchini, and red and yellow sweet bell peppers for an awesome dip.
Happy Cinco De Mayo everyone!
