Chipotle Finally Reveals How to Make Its Guacamole

For some unknown reason Chipotle has released their secret guacamole recipe on their website. Why? Beats me. Yet after announcements that the restaurant chain would start delivering food to customers, and that it would eliminate ingredients that contained genetically modified organisms from their menu, it seems the business is trying to get on everyone's good side. Not that the fast-food chain wasn't already... for me at least. First GMOs and now guac? I see you, Chipotle.

As it turns out however, and as you might have suspected, the guac recipe is quite simple. It's so easy in fact, that you've probably seen similar variations or quite possibly the exact same recipe all over the Internet. So honestly it's a little bit underwhelming, though very much appreciated from all the Chipotle lovers of the world.

"We know that you know that guac is extra, but have you ever thought about what makes it so delicious?" Chipotle's statement reads. "Well, it starts with sourcing the best whole ingredients possible, and ends with a quick mash in our restaurant. In fact, it’s so easy, we’re going to show you how to do it below."

  • 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

I don't quite understand the motive behind this decision, but with Cinco de Mayo only several hours away I'm sure everyone will be thrilled to have this recipe on hand for their last-minute party dishes. And maybe, just maybe, Chipotle fans will continue to use this guac recipe in the future, and when their children ask where it came from, they'll say, "Chipotle, honey. Chipotle." But probably not.
