People Are Freaking Out Because The New York Times Suggested Making Guacamole With Peas

WTF.

On Wednesday, the New York Times sent out a tweet that looked innocent, but was incredibly sinister:

Add green peas to your guacamole. Trust us. http://t.co/7imMY9c2ph

Yes, the esteemed publication is suggesting that we make our guacamole with peas. Imagine you're about to eat this delicious guac...

Naturally, people are super upset about this BLASPHEMY.

The issue is so critical that PRESIDENT OBAMA weighed in. This is a CRISIS.

But he apparently thinks you put hot peppers and garlic in it?

Now people are accusing New York of ruining guac for everyone.

Peas in guacamole?! Over our dead bodies, @nytimes. #AvacadoArmy #GuacamoleGate

Of course, someone already created a Twitter for Pea Guacamole and it is sassy AF.

Good luck explaining this one to Michelle, Barry. Grab a chip, Hater-in-Chief https://t.co/3FgFd55Rmb

The New York Times later tried to tweet out other guacamole recipes, but the damage is done.

If you're wondering, the newspaper says peas in guac is one of those "radical moves that is also completely obvious after you taste it."

The reason?

The peas add intense sweetness and a chunky texture to the dip, making it more substantial on the chip. They also intensify the color of the green avocado — and help the guacamole stay that way.
