Aztec Guacamole


Steamed broccoli, edamame, or asparagus tips can be used in place of peas.

Healthy Guacamole Recipe


1 cup frozen peas, slightly thawed
1 medium Hass avocado, peeled and pitted
2 tablespoons fresh lime or lemon juice, or to taste
1 medium tomato, seeded and cut into ¼-inch pieces
½ red or sweet onion, cut into ⅛-inch pieces
1 jalapeño or serrano chile, seeded and minced
3 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped
1 teaspoon fresh garlic, minced
½ teaspoon sea salt
¼ teaspoon fresh ground black pepper


  1. In a blender or in the bowl of a food processor, process the peas until smooth.
  2. In a medium bowl, mash the avocado with a fork or potato masher. Add the juice, tomato, onion, jalapeño, cilantro, garlic, salt, and black pepper. Add the peas and mix well.
  3. If the guacamole won’t be served immediately, press a piece of plastic wrap directly onto the surface to prevent browning.
