My friend Kristin told me about Mock-A-Mole and I was shocked - "healthy guacamole," she said. "You can't even tell the difference." She said she made a batch and didn't tell her friends that had come over to watch a football game and surprise, surprise...they didn't say a, of course, she spilled the beans afterwards, but I had to try it as I was intrigued. Healthy Guacamole!?! I made the mock-a-mole when Jassny and Buren came over to watch a game and told them to guess the secret ingredient. Answers were something like, "cumin?" "Garlic Salt?" (there is garlic salt in it, but it wasn't the secret ingredient). Finally after many guesses and a lot of "this is so goods" I told's GREEN PEAS! It almost adds a sweeter taste to the guacamole, which everyone seemed to love. This would be perfect for kids - Chad hates green peas, and he said he loved it! I'm definitely going to make this one again, so on Superbowl Sunday there is a healthy indulgence other than the usual Chicken wings and Kelsey's famous Chili Cheese Dip! Enjoy friends!

from Bethenney Frankel (Real Housewives NY) by way of Kristin Gopal
2 tbsp. fresh Cilantro chopped
1 tbsp. red onion chopped
1 avocado
1 cup green peas (frozen work great!)
2 tsp. fresh lime juice
1 tsp. Worcester Sauce
Dash of Tobasco
1 tsp. Garlic Salt
Pepper (to taste)
1 tsp. chopped parsley
1 cup chopped tomato

1. Using an immersion blender (you can also use a regular blender) - blend all ingredients leaving chunks.

2. Sprinkle with Cilantro and serve with Healthy baked tortilla chips



  1. what's the unhealthy part?

  2. unhealthy part? of guac?? The fat content of avocados - Guacamole is so great for you and Avocados are a "good" fat, but in moderation. I know when I sit in front of a bowl of guac I eat the whole thing - that's unhealthy!
