Don't tell the kids but sometimes we have Guacamole for dinner. They'll want to know why this wasn't allowed when they were home. And we won't even discuss in the hot summer when we have ice cream for dinner! I'm thinking this way - it's avocado (very healthy), lime juice (Vitamin C), and cilantro (it's green=must be healthy). OK so maybe you're not buying that guacamole is a good dinner so I won't even try to sell you on the ice cream for dinner thing. But guacamole does taste good and it's quick to put together. Besides it's usually a Friday night meal. You know you get home from work; it's been a long week. You really don't need a recipe. It's just a matter of adding ingredients until it tastes right.
Buzz shallot in food processor. Add remainder of ingredients and pulse until combined. Taste and adjust seasoning.
Now I know authentic guacamole is really not made in the food processor. It's made using a mortar and pestle. My mortar and pestle is not big enough to make a whole batch of guacamole and I must confess I prefer guacamole smooth rather than chunky. I know, I know chunky is more authentic. But I'm not going for authentic here. I'm going for a quick "dinner."
