Holy Moly Guacamole

Holy Moly Guacamole from Hungry Girl Recipes

My sister-in-law brought this to a family party and I knew I’d found a winner! Don’t let the peas scare you. Being an avid pea-hater my entire life, I’ve only recently begun serving them in any form to please my husband. Believe me, you cannot taste them at all. The best part about this recipe is it’s healthy too! Only 78 calories per serving (1/3 cup).

One 15 -ounce can early (young) peas, drained

1/2 cup mashed avocado

1/3 cup chopped cherry or grape tomatoes

1/4 cup finely chopped onion

1/4 cup plain fat-free Greek yogurt

4 teaspoons lime juice

1/2 teaspoon chopped garlic

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon black pepper

1/8 teaspoon ground cumin

1/8 teaspoon chili powder

additional salt and pepper, to taste

optional: chopped fresh cilantro, chopped jarred jalapenos

In a medium sized bowl, mash peas thoroughly with a potato masher.  Add avocado, yogurt, lime juice, garlic, and seasonings.  Continue to mash until blended.  Stir in tomatoes, onion, and if you like, some cilantro and/or jalapenos.  Season to taste with salt and pepper.
