The Reason Chipotle's Guacamole Is
So Delicious
By Cynthia Anaya
Chipotle prides itself on its use of high-quality ingredients. If you've dined there before, you'd likely agree that the taste of the food points to the high quality of the ingredients, and the delicious guacamole is a prime example.
Chad Bauze, an executive chef for Chipotle, shared the full recipe which includes hass avocados from Mexico ripened to perfection, fresh-squeezed lime juice, chopped cilantro, diced red onion, diced jalapenos, and kosher salt.
The rising cost of avocados and the COVID-19 pandemic led some restaurants to use calabacitas, a Mexican squash, which leads to "thinner and more watery" guac, according to Newsweek. Chipotle always uses avocados, which puts their guacamole above the rest.
