Zesty’s Take on Guacamole

by zesty on August 8, 2011 · 5 comments

Earlier this year I had Chipotle Mexican Grill for the first time in California.  Needless to say I loved it.  I especially loved the guacamole and chips.  After a bit of research, I realized that the recipes for their food items were published online so you can try them at home.

If you have never heard of Chipotle Mexican Grill or have never tried the food there… you must!  Their food with integrity philosophy is really eye catching and hits close to home when you think of prepared food in a restaurant setting.

Chipotle’s Story

“Food with Integrity” is our commitment to always look closer, dig deeper, and work harder to ensure that our actions are making things better, not worse. It’s our promise to run our business in a way that doesn’t exploit animals, people or the environment. It is the philosophy that guides every decision we make at Chipotle.

Well of course I had to try it out.  I did this a while ago and just never posted it for you to enjoy.  Here is the low down on what I feel is one of the top 5 guacamole I have ever had.


  • 2 Hass Avocados
  • 1/2 of a Jalapeno pepper, seeded, and minced
  • 1/4 of a red onion, finely chopped
  • 2 heaping Tablespoons of Cilantro, finely chopped
  • 1/4 of a lime, juiced
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  1. Combine all of the ingredients into a bowl, and mash together until smooth.
  2. Add additional lime juice or salt to taste. For extra spicy guacamole, you can leave in the jalapeno seeds!

Zesty Tip: This recipe is an approximation based on the original Chipotle recipe. Please use it as a base for your guacamole creation, and feel free to make improvements based on your own personal preferences.

Ok, I have to get to work…. 3 million things to do after being away last week and away all weekend.  Have a great start to your week and I cannot wait to hear your favorite guacamole recipe in the comments.  You know you have to tell me them so don’t be shy.

Take care
