Edamame Guacamole

I've said before this might look like guacamole gone bad, but it's actually dip made with edamame. This is a recipe I made a while back and am craving sitting here looking at the picture. It's so delicious. You make it with frozen edamame and can season to taste. So basically you could make this dip suit the flavors/spices you like best!
*Cracker Tip-Did you know Triscuits are the only grocery store cracker that isn't processed I've been able to find? If there are more, please share! Triscuits are made with five ingredients or less (I believe it's only three ingredients!) They're perfect for snacking and dips; great with peanut butter or cheese.

Edamame Guacamole directions:
First puree shelled, thawed edamame in a blender or food processor.  Also add some olive oil, lime juice, and a bit of water in as well.  You will want the dip to be smooth and starting to get creamy.  Process or blend the chunks out! Next transfer the mixture to a bowl and add more olive oil and lime juice, along with the spices of your choice. I used salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, and chili powder. You will season to taste! As a general rule I would say to use 1/2 a teaspoon or less...probably more like a 1/4 to start. You can always add more if necessary! After you add your spices you will also mix in some chopped red onion, red bell pepper, and garlic.  Mix well and you're done!

Happy Eating! Sara
