That is all that should be in guacamole.
You're missing the diced onions and jalapeños. Not too many, but just enough to give it some kick and bulk.

I've had it with diced tomatoes and enjoyed that too.

Yup; I much prefer it with some diced tomatoes and jalapenos. Gotta get some heat. I could go either way with onions.

Re: Guacamole: Peas or no peas?

I've never had peas in guacamole, and I hope I never will, but I did grab a burrito from my favorite little authentic Mexican hole-in-the-wall (a rarity in New England to be sure) and there were peas in the burrito! I rarely get their burrito as the tacos are much better, but I don't remember ever seeing peas in it before. Hopefully this isn't becoming a trend.

Re: Guacamole: Peas or no peas?

It's not like the NYT is saying that peas are a regular guac ingredient. Instead, they are a "radical move" and a "tweak upon a classic."

Re: Guacamole: Peas or no peas?

There was this dump around here that put shredded lettuce in it. Just such a blatant filler as it offers no taste addition.

Disregard it, and NYT's poor judgment in publishing this idiocy.

Pete Wells, at least, didn't even mention the guac in his review.
From my perspective (here in California) it seems like it took New York 100 years to discover Mexican food and now they're pretending like they invented it. See Chipotle's popularity in Brooklyn.

Sort of like what California did with pizza?

There's a very authentic place near me that puts peas and carrots in their mexican rice and when you order a burrito that rice is one of the ingredients. I don't know how typical it is, but it's not unheard of.

And a recipe created by one the most well known, influential, and skilled chefs in America, if not in the whole world.

No. After years of trying, califorina has failed to ever make an authentic ny or chicago style pizza.

That's because they keep trying to put stupid shit on pizza... like black beans or broccoli ... or avocados.

Which, of course, brings us back to the OP.

That's a good point. It never even occurred to me that the peas were part of the rice. That's not so weird. It was still new for this place though.

You are right. And the idiot mentality of the chefs who popularized "California" pizza are people like this Jean-Georges Vongerichten at ABC Cocina putting peas in shit.

Re: Guacamole: Peas or no peas?

Well, looking at the actual article, no one ever tried to pass this off as traditional guac. I'm not seeing what the big deal is, but then California style is my favorite kind of pizza (I happen to like toppings like goat cheese and roasted asparagus. ) :-)

Re: Guacamole: Peas or no peas?

As flip as my original reply was, I'm 110% in favor of chefs -- particularly chefs as talented as this one -- putting together new flavor combinations. Peas and sunflower seeds don't say guac to me, but given the pedigree of the dish, im sure it's well thought out and probably tastes delicious.

Re: Guacamole: Peas or no peas?

Orwellian conspiracy theory...

California drought. Avocado price increase and shortage. Real guacamole has always had peas in it. It's delicious. Next year...guacamole is peas. It's always been 100% peas. You will love it. What's an avocado?

Buncha do about nothing but peas can offset the heartburn people get from pure guacamole.

I always enjoy it when someone re-invents the wheel by putting a couple of pointy bits on it, for a little "glam."

Chipotle's what now? The only Chipotles here in Brooklyn are by downtown by the courts. There's like three of them in the entire borough.
