  • 1 medium Tomato (chopped)
  • ½ Red Onion (chopped)
  • 1 Jalapeno or Serrano Chili (seeded and minced)
  • 3 tablespoon Cilantro (chopped)
  • 1 teaspoon Garlic (minced)
  • ½ teaspoon Sea Salt
  • ½ Freshly Ground Black Pepper

Directions

In a blender or food processor, puree the peas until smooth. In a medium bowl, mash the avocado with a fork or potato masher. Add the lime or lemon juice, tomato, onion, jalapeno or Serrano chili, cilantro, garlic, salt, and black pepper. Add the peas and mix well.

*If the guacamole will not be served immediately, press a piece of plastic wrap directly onto the surface to prevent browning.
