This recipe is from the newest Hungry-Girl Cookbook.  I've heard its fabulous.  Don't be scared by the long list of ingredients...most you already have in your kitchen.

1 (15 oz) can early (young) peas, drained
1/2 cup mashed avocado, (about 1 med-small avocado)
1/3 cup chopped cherry or grape tomatoes
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1/4 cup plain FF greek yogurt
4 tsp lime juice
1/2 tsp chopped garlic
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp black pepper
1/8 tsp ground cumin
1/8 tsp chili powder
Optional:  chopped fresh cilantro, chopped jalapeno

Place peas in a med bowl and mash thoroughly with a potato masher or fork.
Add avocado, yogurt, lime juice, garlic, and seasonings.  Continue mashing away as much as you like.  Stir in the tomatoes onions, and if you like, the cilantro and jalapeno.

Makes 6 servings.

This recipe attempts to reduce the fat content of the avocados by cutting them with peas. Its a reasonable idea, and might make a good healthy party option.

Another easy way to reduce fat content is not to serve guacamole with chips, or at least serve it with baked chips.
