Easy Guacamole

Photo: John Autry; Styling: Cindy Barr

The food processor makes quick work of this Easy Guacamole that's rich in heart-healthy monounsaturated fats. We like the heat from leaving the seeds in the jalapeño, but you can seed the pepper for a milder guac. Serve with tortilla chips or crudités.
