This easy Chipotle guacamole recipe is a perfect copycat of the real thing. If you love the guac at Chipotle as much as I do, you need to give this recipe a try.
Confession Time: When I first had Chipotle, I was obsessed. I would it eat it morning, noon and night. Okay, I only did that once….twice tops.
The thing I love most is their guacamole. The tomato-free guacamole. What is with people putting tomatoes in guac?! People, you are ruining it!
Anyways, after eating more than I’d like to admit, I created this copycat Chipotle guacamole recipe. (I’ve been told it’s pretty frickin’ close to the original:)
What makes the perfect Chipotle Guacamole recipe?
The key to making this guacamole taste perfect, aside from leaving out tomatoes, is using ripe avocados. If time permits, buy them hard and let them sit on the counter for 5-6 days until they are dark and soft to the touch.
The worst guac is made from unripe avocados. Truly there are few things in this life that are more heinous than digging into some guacamole and it tasting like unripened bananas. And that’s what this Chipotle guacamole will taste like if you don’t use ripe avocados.
If you’re pressed for time, go to the store and look for dark ones that don’t have any squishy spots. Overripe is better than under ripe, you can always scoop out the brown parts.
