Chipotle Mexican Grill Guacamole

Chipotle Mexican Grill Guacamole is one of my favorite guacamole around. There is generally one major problem with guacamole, and that is simply, it is served in smaller portions than what I would like. Now, you can make guacamole with this CopyKat recipe just like the Chipotle Mexican Grill does.

Friends have often laughed at me, I think of guacamole being the “benevolent” family member when it comes to Tex Mex food. I tend to think of it as something that takes away that heat from peppers. The creaminess of the guacamole seems to act as a salve on a burning tongue like nothing else.
One thing I think we should encourage people to do is to prepare food at home, I have seen guacamole sold pre-made in stores, some of it I find scary it looks like a green paste, its edible, but it isn’t good. Chipotle Mexican Grill makes everything fresh, and they do so right in front of you. So you can see them use only fresh ingredients, and it really makes a big difference in the way the food tastes. So here is my take on their guacamole, I hope you enjoy guacamole, half as much as I do!

    I used to be a Manager at Chipotle for a few years and this is the best recipe I have used to make smaller amounts.It’s about the quality of the avocados you use and the attention to detail. Let me know what you think of this recipe.

    This is not the Chipotle Mexican Grill recipe. They do not use garlic, and the add cilantro. You mash the avocados first, then add salt and citrus juice. They use a blend of lemon lime, then you add the rest of the ingredients. I kniw this because I managed a Chipotle restaurant for 3 years.

    Hun, you’re putting the limes in upside down! The cut side is supposed to face the bottom curved area. That way the juice can flow through the holes in the bottom and you get more juice that way! :)

    If you work for Chipolte and make the guacamole, why don’t you put the amounts of each ingredients?

    I actually work for Chipotle and have made the guac there, and we do not use garlic. Our exact ingredients are:
    Avocados
    Cilantro
    Red onions
    Jalapenos
    Citrus-lime juice
    salt

    • Luisa

      Yup you are right!
      I Work t Chipotle too and we cant say the amounts plus we make a whole case of Avocadoes…

    • Kelley

      and another point is that the lime juice should be added before mashing the avocado. This helps to keep the avocado bright green!!

  • Whitephang

    and your missing celantro and lemon juice

  • Whitephang

    sorry, they dont use garlic :)
