New York Times Sparks Internet Outrage With Bohemian Guacamole Recipe

The greatest debate in the history of guacamole arrived on Wednesday, as a heretic recipe from the New York Times outraged the internet and forced no less a connoisseur than Barack Obama to weigh in. The great guac-off of 2015 was not about extra charges for the dip – it was about adding an extra vegetable … quite an unnecessary one, according to people with too much time on their hands. “Add green peas to your guacamole. Trust us,” the newspaper told its 17.7 million followers. Not many people did. But the mockamole of “pea-gate” quickly escalated to a bipartisan political platform. The Texas Republican party took to Twitter to say the Times had “declared war on Texas when they suggested adding green peas to guacamole.”
