Copycat Chipotle Guacamole
Usually I think I can just throw together some ingredients when it comes to guacamole, and have it turn out well. After a couple of tries with that and the guac just being okay, I decided to look up Chipotle’s delicious guacamole recipe. I found it on PopSugar with a collaboration they did with Chipotle here.Turns out I should have done this long ago. This was the best homemade guacamole I’ve ever made. I couldn’t eat enough of it. Next time you need some guac, try this recipe (and make lots ;) I was a little skeptical of the lemon juice, but trust me it’s delicious. They called for serrano chiles which I didn’t have so I substituted a jalapeno instead.
Ingredients, Chipotle Copycat Guacamole:
  • 3 large avocadoes
  • 1 tbsp. citrus juice (lemon & lime combined – fresh juice)
  • 1 1/2 c. cilantro, chopped fine
  • 1/2 red onion, diced very thin
  • 1/2 jalapeno, diced small (remove seeds unless you want it really spicy)
  • 1/2 tsp salt (add more if needed)
The recipe calls to mash the citrus juice in with this, but I prefer to pour it over the diced onions for about 5 minutes. I really think this helps cut down on the bite of the raw onions in the recipe. After onions have sat in the citrus juice for 5 minutes, roughly mash the avocadoes with a fork (leave some chunks!), then add remaining ingredients, including onions. Serve immediately! Also, I like my avocadoes chilled beforehand so my guac is cold. Is that strange? Also I topped mine with extra cilantro because I love it.
