Holy Moly Guacamole
This guacamole has a very special secret ingredient... canned peas!
Don't start making faces -- it totally works and requires less avocado. (You don't want to overdo it on fat, even the healthy kind.)
Serve with baked chips or crunchy veggies, and dip away...
One 15-ounce can early/young peas, drained
1/2 cup mashed avocado (about 1 medium avocado)
1/4 cup fat-free plain Greek yogurt
1 tbsp. plus 1 tsp. lime juice
1/2 tsp. minced garlic
1/4 tsp. salt, or more to taste
1/8 tsp. black pepper, or more to taste
1/8 tsp. ground cumin
1/8 tsp. chili powder
1/3 cup chopped cherry or grape tomatoes
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
Thoroughly mash peas in a medium-large bowl. (Or puree peas in a small blender or food processor and transfer to a medium-large bowl.)
Thoroughly mix in avocado, yogurt, lime juice, garlic, and seasonings.
Stir in tomatoes, onion and, if you like, optional ingredients. Enjoy!
