How to Make Chipotle Guacamole

Recently I found out that Chipotle has posted their recipe for guacamole! It's one of my weaknesses and I've started to realize that it's not even worth it to get it in the store anymore - a tiny cup of it will set you back almost $4 for the guacamole alone. 

So here it is - the recipe according to their website. I'm always skeptical about my own ability to replicate a recipe. But this worked for me! It tasted exactly like Chipotle's!

2 ripe avocados
2 tsp lime juice (to start with, and then adding more at the end until it tasted right)
2 tbsp chopped cilantro
1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
1/2 jalapeƱo finely chopped 
1/4 tsp salt (I added more after I was done until it tasted right)

2 avocados - not organic because I'm cheap and these were 4 for $5 - a steal in Illinois!

All the ingredients mise en place. I scooped out the avocado into a bowl. I ended up only using half a lime.

Threw everything in a bowl and started mashing. So easy! 

And here's the final product! I added more salt and lime until it tasted close to what you'd get in the store. This was easier than expected and was so much cheaper. Definitely recommend this! Thanks to my boyfriend for being a great hand model while I snap a pic!



  1. Goshh I love guac. I usually just make do with avocado and lime but I'll try this if I'm feeling fancy!

    1. Ahh, add in the cilantro, onion, and jalapeno! This is the proper way to make it and it's so so good.
