I love Chipotle Restaurant's Guacamole! After lots of searching, I finally found the recipe in The Dallas Morning News. It was submitted by Kent Chambless, chef at one of the Chipotle Restaurants. I haven't tried out the recipe yet, but I will as soon as I go to the store and buy an avocado!!!
- 1 large ripe avocado, peeled, pitted
- 2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
- 1⁄2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
- 1⁄4 cup finely chopped onion
- 2 garlic cloves, finely minced
- 2 large serrano chilies, seeded, chopped
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- Mash up avocado with a fork or electric mixer.
- Add lime juice.
- Add all other ingredients and blend well.
- Serve with tortilla chips.
- Note: I think Chipotle's serves lime-flavored tortilla chips.
Epic fail: this is in no way shape or form chipotle's guac recipe the only thing she got right is avao and cilantro the ingredient list for chipotle guac is as follows; RIPE hass avocado's (1 case about 50 avao's) 2 cups choped(do not bruise) cilantro. 2and1/2 cups finly diced red onion. 1/3 cup finly diced jalapinos. 1/2 cup citrus juice(chipotle use's a blended citrus juice consisting of 80/20 lemon and lime)and 2 tbl. kosher salt..I have worked at chipotle for a long time and I make this every day. and oh for best results mash the avao's by hand. oh and the chips, fried in soy oil and seasoned with kosher salt and fresh squeezed lime.
A very good guacamole recipe. I've made this twice in the past week. The first time I used the full amount of cilantro, and found it was a bit much (even making the guacamole a bit dry), so I made it again. I cut the amount of cilantro in half, and it still had plenty of cilantro flavor, but it turned out much better. I'll make it again.
Definitely Epic Fail! I gotta agree with Chef #1520765 - Epic Fail! Who knows if either this recipe or the one Chef #1520765 gives are really Chipotle's - at a minimum - the ratios are all wrong for this recipe. I have a guac. recipe with similar ingredients but different ratios; mine is a good recipe, but definitely not Chipotle's. I thought that maybe these ratios would make my recipe better - NO! I used red onion, and only one serrano (only had one); It was too salty, and there was way too much cilantro & onion. I love garlic, but it ruined this guac (I'm now convinced garlic does not belong in guac). After tasting this disaster, I added two more avocados to help dilute the onion, cilantro, salt, etc... - I probably needed to add ten more. Basically good ingredients - Probably wrong ratios - Definitely NOT Chipotle's recipe!!!
