If you thought the New York Times was off its rocker for suggesting that readers add peas to their guacamole recipes, take a look at what TIME magazine wants to add — goat cheese:

An excerpt:

Since we take our Mexican food seriously here in L.A., we tapped local food blogger — and “self-proclaimed Queen of Guacamole” — Gaby Dalkin of What’s Gaby Cooking to spill her yummiest guac recipe. Her twist: Goat cheese. That’s right, the ingredient you’ve normally reserved for pizzas and salads is just the thing your dip is missing. “It has the citrus taste that you love from any guacamole recipe,” she says. “But, the tangy flavor from the goat cheese is everything. It’s the perfect complement to the creamy avocado.”

No thanks! And get this … what kind of guacamole is missing cilantro and jalapenos but includes sun dried tomatoes?

3 Hass avocados
1/3 cup crumbled goat cheese
1/4 cup chopped chives
1/4 cup chopped sun dried tomatoes
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
Coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

That’s not guacamole. Maybe avocado dip, but certainly not guacamole.
