Homemade Guacamole Made With Peas

Updated on March 26, 2011

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.


Guacamole Recipe

Ingredients

1 avocado, pitted, ripened and peeled

1 cup of peas, cooked and mashed

1 quarter cup of salsa

Cayenne pepper to taste

Lime juice

 

Directions

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.

________________________________________________________________

Don't worry

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.

    I make guacamole once a week. Will have to try the pea thing. Interesting.

    This sounds pretty good, UW. I have always loved the way guacamole is made in California: Several avacados, equal amounts of sour cream, a little lemon juice (for zest and to keep it from turning brown). Definitely not for the dieter, but yummy!

    Thanks for all the comments :) I agree mom, peas are underappreciated. I love them. Give peas a chance!

    You won't be disappointed if you try it write on.

    I'm a little anal when it comes to food. I don't like my food getting all mixed up. Except when it has gravy on top...gravy makes everything better.

    What a unique and fun way to make guacamole!  I will try it your way next time. Marisue I am like you, on Thanksgiving day I mix my peas, potatoes, gravy, stuffy, and turkey altogether and eat it that way off the plate. Mixed food taste good to me.

    Great idea to cut the natural fat of the avocadoes. You know, I worry that peas are underappreciated as vegetables (at least here). We grew up eating them -- canned, frozen, fresh in the summertime. You never, ever see them out here in CA. I'm going to sneak some into my next party. Shhhhh....

    Yum, yum! I have to try this! And Marisue's mashed potatoes/peas, too. Both sound great.

    Thanks marisue. No, I haven't tried that, but I really like potatoes and peas so I'll have to give it a try.
