It costs extra. We all know that. But when you get the guacamole from Chipotle and add it to your burrito or bowl or taco or bag of chips or more guacamole, the creamy buttery kicking deliciousness is divine. How does Chipotle make its guacamole? With this totally simple and normal recipe.

Chipotle follows this official recipe in its restaurants:

  • 2 ripe Hass avocados (In the restaurant, we use 48 per batch, multiple times per day)
  • 2 tsp lime juice
  • 2 tbsp cilantro (chopped)
  • 1/4 cup red onion (finely chopped)
  • 1/2 jalapeño, including seeds (finely chopped)
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt

That’s pretty basic (and like many other guac recipes on the Internet)! All you do is throw the pitted and peeled avocados in a bowl, squirt the lime juice, sprinkle the salt and then smash it up until you get the texture you want. Then, add the rest of the ingredients and mix it all up to taste. If you like Chipotle’s guac, now you know how to make it at home.
