And yes, I love making guacamole in my mortar and pestle. Kids especially love to make guacamole in this. You can get really terrific, inexpensive mortar and pestles at any large Asian grocery or restaurant supply store. Here in San Francisco I went to Kamei on Clement Street in the Richmond. I think that I paid about $25 for mine. I keep my guacamole simple—I like it to have a little bit of a rough texture, a squirt of lime juice and a couple of drops of Siracha,(chili garlic sauce) just to enliven it a bit.
