Mock Guacamole

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by Chris from Kansas

This is a ligher alternative to the favorite guacamole. Still has the good flavor of avocado, but gets more volume from the green peas. Try it if you're interested in a good healthy substitution. Cook time includes chilling.

Thanks for posting... You have saved me from having to do it! I have used this recipe out of an old TOH issue for years, except this version calls for more avocado. I love saving on calories and not sacrificing taste. This is surprisingly good considering it is mostly PEAS!
