Make It Monday: Mock Guacamole

I came across this recipe when I was counting weight watchers points years ago. I am not sure on the points, but it is certainly half of what regular guacamole will be since you are using half as much avocado. There is a pea flavor to it, but if you eat it served in a burrito or on a taco salad the flavors will all blend and you will not even notice it. I would think that if you just ate this with chips you would taste the peas. I have seen where it was all peas for the recipe, but I don't think that would taste close enough. But if have Mock Guac with a little pea flavor or no guacamole are the options, I will have the Mock Guac. I think having fats included as part of your diet is healthy and avocados have a good fat, but considering the way I eat guacamole it's probably smart to have only half the traditional amount of avocados in it and add in a different veggies.

This is a simple recipe:

Mock Guac Recipe

1 avocado
1/2 bag frozen (thawed peas)
1 packet guacamole seasoning

Puree it all together and chill for at least 30 minutes.

What a great recipe. I tried something like this before and didn't even notice the peas.
