Chipotle restaurants are known for their wonderful food and the fact that they use local farms to supply their restaurants with fresh produce. They are also pretty good at sharing! We stopped by recently because they said they were going to share their famous guacamole recipe. True to their word they did! We meet with Ashley Head at the store in the Pearl District and she had all the ingredients for their famous guacamole set out on the table. This Guacamole is a great crowd pleaser.

Ingredients

Fresh cilantro 1 Cup (16 tbs) , chopped finely
Red onions 1 Cup (16 tbs) , chopped finely
Serrano chilies 2 Tablespoon , chopped finely
Lime juice/Lime juice 2 Tablespoon
Garlic 1 Teaspoon , minced
Kosher salt 1 Teaspoon (or to taste)
Avocado 3 Large

Directions

MAKING

1. Halve the avocados and discard the stone.

2. Scoop out the flesh using a teaspoon, into a large bowl.

3. Mash the avocado with the back of a large spoon or with a potato masher. You can mash them as per your preferred texture of the guacamole. Smooth and creamy is the Chipotle way but you can leave it chunky is you like.

4. Add the onion, cilantro, chilies, lime juice, garlic and salt. Mix well.

SERVING

5. Serve with corn chips.
