    President Barack Obama has a message for The New York Times: please don't pass the peas.

    Into the guacamole, at least. 

    The president joined the online masses piling on the newspaper on Wednesday afternoon following a much-retweeted story suggesting "adding fresh English peas" to the popular avocado dip.

    The tweet sparked cries of culinary foul from users, gaining hundreds of retweets in the process. The Times' public editor even suggested that the backlash could rival the "Minnesota Grape Salad outcry" that hit after the paper listed the obscure recipe as a state favorite. 

    When asked about the suggestion during an #ASKPotus Twitter chat Wednesday, the president suggested he'll stick to a more traditional recipe. 

    First lady Michelle Obama, a vocal advocate of incorporating more green veggies into daily diets, has yet to weigh in.
