Recipe Friday... Mexican Themed

Since Cinco De Mayo was yesterday I thought I'd highlight some yummy mexican food. I was in Mexico in January and ate guacamole on EVERYTHING so I'm going to feature a great guacamole recipe today!

Here's the recipe. It's actually a weight watchers recipe which I think is great!

- 1 medium avocado, ripe, peeled and pitted
- 1 15-oz. can young peas, drained and rinsed
- 1/4 cup chopped tomatillos
- 1/4 cup finely chopped red onions
- 1/3 cup chopped tomatoes
- 1/4 cup Labane Yogurt Cheese* or fat-free plain Greek yogurt
- 2 tbsp lime juice
- 4 cloves chopped garlic
- 1 tsp cumin
- 2 tbsp chopped cilantro
- Kosher salt and pepper to taste
*Labane Cheese can be found at most Kosher Grocery Stores
Put peas in a medium bowl and mash with a fork until almost smooth. Add in avocado and mash that into the peas until smooth.
Add remaining ingredients and stir until combined. Cover surface with plastic wrap and refrigerate up to 1 day. Makes 6 servings.
Serving size is 1/3 cup.

Enjoy the Party,

Nicole :)
