Guapa Guacamole!

It's spring time and green peas are in season! This tasty legume is a great source of protein and fiber, making it a nutrient packed addition to traditional guacamole. We love how they kick up the vibrant green color while adding a subtle sweetness to one of our favorite #TIUapproved dips! Plus, it's 100% TIU approved! Serve these up during your Cinco De Mayo celebrations!

SERVINGS

4 servings

INGREDIENTS

  • 1

    avocado

  • 1/4

    cup fresh or frozen peas (if frozen, thaw before using)

  • 1/4

    cup red onion, finely chopped

  • 2

    Tbsp. cilantro

  • 1/4

    lemon, juiced

  • 1/4

    tsp. garlic powder

  • pinch of salt

DIRECTIONS

STEP 1: Remove the avocado from it's skin and seed. Put into a small bowl and lightly smash. It's okay if it's still al little chunky at this point!
STEP 2: In a food processor, add the peas and blend until completely smooth. Transfer this mixture to the avocado bowl.
STEP 3: Add the remaining ingredients to the bowl and smash until you've reached your desired consistency! If you like it smoother, smash for a little longer! Serve with TIU approved crackers, chips or carrots and cucumbers!
