That's right. Chipotle has unveiled its actual guacamole recipe, and I couldn't be happier. Now I can put that heavenly avocado dip on all the foods. And it's actually super easy — just seven steps, and you're chowing down. Pay particular attention to step 7. That's the important one.

Chipotle guacamole recipe

Recipe from Chipotle


  • 2 ripe Hass avocados
  • 2 teaspoons lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro, chopped
  • 1/4 cup red onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 a jalapeño, 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.
