PFG (Pea-Feta Guacamole)

To be fair, I did leave out several ingredients. I don’t like my guac spicy! I also don’t care for mint! But, even though the pic makes it look pretty unappetizing, this was pretty good! The peas gave it a little texture and you could really taste the feta. This was a nice variation.
