I will be on vacation starting tomorrow so I am not sure how much I will be able to blog but I’d like to leave you with a timely recipe. If you are going to or hosting a Super Bowl party this weekend and want to bring or serve guacamole dip, this is a fabulous recipe that I used during the summer at our BBQs. My friends didn’t even know I substituted ingredients:
Serves 6 -8
1 cup peas
½ cup chicken broth
1 Avocado – pit removed and skin peeled and cut into chunks
¼ cup fat free Greek yogurt
1 clove garlic – minced
Juice of 1 lime
1 pkg. Sugar substitute
Sat & pepper to taste
1 jalapeno – minced (can substitute 1 teaspoon of hot sauce)
¼ cup fresh cilantro chopped fine
1. Cook peas with chicken broth in a pot and bring to a boil. Cook for about 1 minute and strain and rinse peas in water.
2. Add peas to food processor and puree for about 30 seconds, until smooth.
3. Add avocado, yogurt, garlic, lime juice, Sugar substitute jalapeno (or hot sauce) and cilantro and puree until smooth.
4. Empty into a bowl & serve with baked tortilla chips.
NOTE: It may be necessary to stop in between to scrape down the sides to ensure the guacamole is consistently smooth.
Happy Cooking and enjoy the game!!
