Guacamole 4 ways

You’re invited for dinner and you want to make something quick and healthy,  then this is it!  I have never had anybody complaining about my Guacamole Recipe with petite peas from Trader Joe’s.  It’s light, easy to make and so good.

Petite PeasGuacamole with PETITE PEAS

2 Tbsp extra virgin Olive oil
1/2 bunch cilantro
2 Jalapeño with the seeds
2 Tbsps fresh lime juice (if needed use more)
chop for about 15 seconds add
1 lb frozen petite peas I found the Petite Peas at Trader Joe’s, (thaw at room temperature, do not cook) add to the processor with
1/4 tsp cumin
3/4 tsp salt
Blend all together for about 1 minute.

(This dip does not need avocado, it is replaced with the frozen petite peas)

Combine all ingredient in a bowl, chop 1/2 cup of red onions, stir into the Guacamole dip, leave some on top and serve with vegetables or corn chips.  So good and healthy.

*Green Peas is a great source of protein.  They are loaded with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory nutrients.   Green Peas have also shown to prevent stomach cancer.
