Low Calorie Recipe

A tasty guacamole at only 88 calories per serving! A blender works better than a food processor.



1/4 cup onion, chopped
1 teaspoon garlic, minced
2 teaspoons chili powder
2 teaspoons cumin
2 cups frozen peas
1/3 cup water
4 teaspoons lemon juice
1/4 cup avocado, chopped
1/4 cup tomato, diced
Salt and black pepper to taste

Recipe Directions

Cook first 4 ingredients in a non-stick pan over medium heat until onion is soft. Add the peas and water. Cover and cook 3 minutes. Puree in blender until smooth. (A blender works better than a food processor for this recipe.) Let cool and add remaining ingredients. Serve as a side salad, with tortillas or with nacho chips.

Recipe Note

In the US it is common to serve guacamole with tortilla chips. However, in Mexico, the proper way to serve guacamole is inside a fresh, warm, corn tortilla.
