"From Crescent Dragonwagon's "Passionate Vegetarian" book. Very interesting way to have guacamole with much less fat by using low-fat peas to stretch the avocado."

    I really liked this. My dh thought it was good, but said you could really taste the peas. I used 2 avocados and skipped the cilantro (personal preference). This might not compare to regular guacamole, but for a low fat dish it was really good.

    I just made this with one avocado, halved the salt and omitted the cilantro. It is wonderful! I will be taking to my women's Bible study tonight with fat free home made oven baked tortilla chips. It's sure to be a hit!

    I make a dish like this except I leave out the cilantro and add cumin and crushed red pepper, and sometimes hot pepper sauce (cholula, tapatio or valencia are all good). Thanks for sharing.

    This is a great idea! It's delicious and it really stretches out the guacamole. I've made it twice so far, the first time i used some chopped canned tomatoes, and the second time I used bottled salsa for the tomatoes. Left out the cilantro both times (though the salsa does contain cilantro...) Easy to make and really good with corn chips!
