I discovered this recipe this winter when I had a craving for guacamole but didn’t have enough avocado. It doesn’t beat Sarah’s authentic guacamole recipe, but I hope you are as pleasantly surprised by it as I was!
Budget Guacamole (with Peas)
1/2 cup roughly chopped cilantro
1 (16 oz) bag frozen green peas (try not to get sweet ones), thawed
1 avocado, peeled, pitted and roughly chopped
3 green onions, sliced
3 cloves garlic
6-8 Tablespoons lime juice (2-3 limes)
2 tsp kosher salt
Set aside 1 Tablespoon cilantro, and then transfer remaining ingredients to a food processor. You could use a blender if you don’t have a food processor…just stir often to avoid clogging. Puree until smooth. Add more salt or lime if needed. Transfer the mixture to a serving dish and garnish with the reserve cilantro. Serve with your favorite chips, veggies, or as a topping with tacos!
