  • 1 ¼ cup fresh or frozen shelled peas

  • 2 ripe avocados, halved, pitted, and peeled

  • 1 - 2 tablespoon lime juice

  • ¼ cup finely chopped red onion

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • 1 small jalapeño pepper, seeded and thinly sliced

  1. Bring a medium saucepan of salted water to boiling. Add peas; simmer frozen peas 1 minute, or simmer fresh peas 5 minutes. Drain; rinse with cold water. Drain again and cool.

  2. Place avocados and lime juice in medium bowl. With a fork, mash avocados. Add peas, onion, garlic, cilantro, and jalapeño. Season to taste with salt. Place guacamole in a serving bowl. Serve immediately or cover surface with plastic wrap and chill up to 2 hours. Drizzle with olive oil if desired; serve with tortilla chips. Makes 9 servings.

*Handling Hot Peppers:

Because hot chile peppers contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes, avoid contact with chiles as much as possible. When working with chile peppers, wear plastic or rubber gloves. If your bare hands do touch the chile peppers, wash your hands well with soap and water.
