Chipotle Guacomole

Mar 25, 2016 by

Chipotle posted their recipe for Guacamole. It’s so easy. I need to stop overthinking about the ingredients of those chain restaurants. Usually their dishes do not need a lot ingredients.

Ingredients:

  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 2 tsp lime juice
  • 2 tbsp cilantro (chopped)
  • 1/4 cup purple onion (finely chopped)
  • 1/2 jalapeño, including seeds if you like it spicy (finely chopped)
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt

Preparations:

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.  Chop the cilantro and cut the avocado in half.

Remove the pit (carefully!)  Scoop the avocados and place in a medium bowl.

Add the salt and using a fork or potato masher, mash until a smooth consistency is achieved.  Chop the jalapeño and the purple onion Fold in the remaining ingredients and mix well.  Add the lime juice. Taste the guacamole (over and over) and adjust seasoning if necessary.
