Homemade Guacamole Made With Peas
I love guacamole. I can't think of having fajitas without sour cream and guacamole. Nacho chips are nothing without guacamole.
Avocados are very good for you, but they are very fatty. It's good fat, but if you still want to cut down on the fat in your guacamole, try this recipe. I call this my quick and dirty guacamole recipe.
1 avocado, pitted, ripened and peeled
1 cup of peas, cooked and mashed
1 quarter cup of salsa
Cayenne pepper to taste
Mash the avocado and the peas together. Leave it slightly chunky. Stir the salsa into the mixture. Add some cayenne pepper to taste. Sprinkle with lime to avoid the guacamole turning brown. Serve with nacho chips or as a condiment to be added to fajitas.
You may be worried that the taste will be changed because you added peas. I guarantee that you will not taste the peas at all, you won't even be able to tell there are peas in the guacamole.
Adding the salsa is just a replacement for having to add tomatoes and onions and spices. I told you this was a quick and dirty recipe. Enjoy.
