    Recipe is a 5 star if you replace the peas with avocados. Took it to a potluck and everyone loved it!

    We made this recipe with two adjustments which resulted in the five-star rating. First, we substituted two avocados for the peas. Second, we used a bit more than a third of a cup of green onions. My husband declared this "the best layer dip ever."
