Chipotle's Guacamole

In honor of Cinco de Mayo, Chipotle posted their recipe for our favorite green stuff! 

2 ripe Hass avocados (In the restaurant, we use 48 per batch, multiple times per day)

2 teaspoons lime juice

2 tablespoons cilantro (chopped)

1/4 cup red onion (finely chopped)

1/2 jalapeƱo, including seeds (finely chopped)

1/4 teaspoon kosher salt


1. Choose the right avocado. It should feel squishy yet firm (like the palm of your hand), and be a nice dark green color on the inside.

2. Cut the avocado in half and the remove the pit (carefully!)

3. Scoop the avocados and place in a medium bowl.

4. Toss and coat with lime juice.

5. Add the salt and using a fork or potato masher, mash until a smooth consistency is achieved.

6. Fold in the remaining ingredients and mix well.

7. Taste the guacamole (over and over) and adjust seasoning if necessary.

* I like to add a pinch of cayenne pepper to spice things up a little!
