I've been fixated on finding a way to turn guacamole into a meal. Not that I or many others haven't made a meal of guacamole and chips. But I'm talking about a guacamole lunch that I could respectably send to school. I found my answer in quinoa. If you fold enough quinoa and a few splashes of olive oil and lime into this guacamole recipe, you have a very fine school lunch -- one that you might also turn into a work lunch. It can be eaten with little forks and is extra good when chased with a whole-wheat chocolate chip cookie and banana.
