  • 8Servings


  • 1 large jalapeño pepper
  • 4 large, very ripe avocados
  • 1/2 small red onion, diced
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro leaves
  • 1 cup fresh or thawed frozen peas
  • Juice of 2 small lime


  1. On a gas range, set wire rack over burner, turn flame to high, and char pepper on all sides, turning once or twice with tongs. Alternatively, char pepper in oven under a broiler set on high. Transfer charred pepper to small bowl, cover with a dish towel, and lets stand 5 minutes, until just cool enough to handle. Rub off skin with dishtowel, then halve and remove seeds.
  2. While peppers are charring, halve avocados, remove pits, and scoop flesh into a medium bowl. Add onion and cilantro.
  3. Purée peas, lime juice, and charred pepper until smooth, and add to guacamole. Season to taste with salt and pepper, and serve.
