— -- President Obama has officially settled #GuacGate2015, the Internet's intense reaction to a controversial New York Times tweet today saying, "Add green peas to your guacamole. Trust us."

The verdict? Obama, like the majority of America, isn't buying the ideas of peas in his guac.

Obama added he respected the Times but that he's sticking to his "classic" recipe of onions, garlic and hot peppers for his guac.

His response was favorited over 8,000 times and retweeted over 7,000 times as of 5 p.m. today -- only a little over an hour from when he first started #AskPOTUS, a live Twitter chat intended to answer the nation's questions about health care.

Obama revealed last year that chips and guacamole were his favorite dish at a kids' state dinner meant to promote healthy eating.

"My big thing -- chips and guacamole," Obama said. "Basically, if there is a bowl of good chips and guacamole..."

"He loses it," First Lady Michelle Obama said.

"I lose my mind," Obama said. "I lose my mind."

The rest of the Internet also lost its mind after the New York Times made the contentious suggestion to add peas to your guacamole.

In other news, though Jeb Bush disagreed with Obama's decision to reopen the U.S. Embassy in Cuba, he did agree with Obama's stance on peas in guac.
