Prep Time: 10 minutes
Set Time: 10 Minutes

On Game Day, don’t ruin your New Year’s Resolutions…

Instead, help yourself and others to healthier versions of popular snacks.  For instance, guacamole isn’t in itself that bad considering avocados provide essential mono-unsaturated fats, potassium and folate. However, when you combine guacamole with chips, nachos, burgers and beer Super Bowl Sundays are a dietary mess!

Save yourself and try our version below which incorporates pureed peas into the mix.  Peas bring Vitamin C to the party and help reduce the amount of fat per serving.  Just don’t tell anyone (unless they have a strong aversion to peas, of course)…let them judge for themselves.

**********************************

In a food processor, add cilantro, green onion, cloves and thawed frozen peas. Puree until smooth.

In a medium size bowl, mash avocados with lime juice. (Hint: Using a muddler makes the job quick and easy).  Add the pureed mix and seasoning.  Mix well to blend.

Let sit for 10 minutes before serving.

Enjoy!

  1. This is different with peas added. I just had an avacado sandwith for lunch, they are one of my favorite foods. I just can’t get the best avacados in Minnesota though. I have friends dropping by this weekend so I’ll give it a try! Don’t have the salsa seasoning so I will have to improvise.
