I've made this a few times for a weekend snack and I love it :) It's fat free! And delicious!


2 cups thawed frozen peas
2 shallots
2 roma tomato
3 garlic cloves
1 lime
1 tsp cumin
jalapeno pepper (as much as you like)
cilantro (as much as you like)

Rough chop the shallot, tomatoes, garlic, cilantro and jalapeno and put it all in a food processor or blender (don't blend yet). Add thawed peas, cumin and lime juice and blend to the consistency you like. Cover and let it sit for an hour so the flavors meld.

It looks like guacamole! Tastes good, too! And for those of you who think it will taste like peas, you are waayy wrong. After sitting for an hour, it's impossible to tell it's peas. Greg and BFF Laura can attest to this.

If you want real guacamole flavor, cut it down to 1 cup peas and 1 avocado. It will still be less fat and will have that guacamole flavor. Avocados are full of fat, albeit good fat, but anywhere you can just fat and calories is good :)
