HG Holy Moly Guacamole I know what you are all thinking (after you read the recipe)..peas?!? I must admit I was VERY apprehensive about this as well. Especially since I HATE peas..but I promise will have NO idea they are there! My dad hates them as well..sooo, I didn't tell anyone about the ingredients; served the guac; and after the meal was over and everyone went on about how great the guac was..I told them the secret ingredients. No one could believe it!! So what are you waitin for? Get to mashin'! (FYI, this recipe can be found in Hungry Girl 200 Under 200, page 112)
