Smashed Pea Guacamole

WHO: thechocolatefig is a student in San Fransisco. 

WHAT: Your classic guacamole takes a frolic through a springtime pasture, and comes back refreshed. 

HOW: Dump your ingredients in a food processor and press "pulse." 

WHY WE LOVE IT: With thechocolatefig's clever move -- adding peas to guacamole -- you gain a sweet, fresh taste without taking away from the classic. We'll be making this all summer long. Sometimes, it's easy being green!
