Not exactly authentic, but it stretches the guacamole. I was skeptical at first, but it really tastes delicious and nobody noticed the difference :shifty

The night before:

1 cup dried lima beans
1/2 cup chopped onion

into a bowl. Add enough water to cover and then let soak overnight.

Next Day:
dump beans & onions into a pot. Bring to a rapid boy, and then simmer for an hour and a half. Drain and Cool

3 Tbsp Lemon juice
1/2 tsp salt.
1 Tbsp butter
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
3 ripe avocados

in a food processor. Add bean mixture and mix until smooth.

Add one chopped tomato and serve :)

Cool recipe. Our local newspaper had an article in the weekend magazine that included green peas in it's guac recipe. I thought that was interesting way to "hide" more veggies but it would stretch it too.

Neat! I wonder if it would work with other dried beans too. That makes sense! :)
