The guacamole you pay extra for at Chipotle is now available for you to make at home and load up on to your heart's content. On April 23, Chipotle's executive chef Chad Brauze hosted an Instagram Live video on the fast casual chain’s profile to reveal the ingredients and demonstrate how to make it. That same recipe was also posted to Twitter and, for convenience, we have it for you right here.
In the same Instagram Live, Gauze also taught viewers how to make "Superfood Guac" with hemp oil, chia seeds and hemp seeds; the "Extra-est Guac" with pomegranate, cotija cheese, pepitas and adobo; and "Guac Ranch" with homemade or store-bought ranch mixed with guacamole. But for Chipotle fans, the chain's guac shines all on its own.
The ingredient list for basic Chipotle-style guacamole features all the familiar suspects: avocado, lime juice, cilantro, red onion, jalapeño and salt. All you need are chips for dipping, tortillas, shredded cheese and a few other ingredients to make your own homemade version of one of the best burritos in America.
