The Guacamole Recipe Chipotle Doesn\u2019t Want You to Have

Chipotle Mexican Grill has, for a long time, staked some of its reputation on their guacamole.

Chipotle doesn’t give their guac away for free (except sometimes) and, in fact, is staunch about not doing so. At time of publication, an order of small guac and chips at Chipotle is $4.20. Chipotle’s guacamole is delicious and fresh, they argue, so you’ll pay for it.

Now if by chance you don’t like this whole “guacamole is extra” attitude, well, TOO BAD, because Chipotle’s guacamole hard-lining is pretty much mashed into the chain’s branding at this point.

Which kind of makes you wonder: Just what the heck makes Chipotle guacamole so special, anyway? What’s in the stuff? And, if it’s not all that complicated to make, why not just tell off The Guacamole Man and make your own damn Chipotle guacamole at home for a fraction of the cost?

It’s weird, that’s exactly what I was wondering when I set about trying to craft a copycat recipe of Chipotle’s guacamole at home. It was an experiment that, looking back on it now, I thought would be simple. How naive, I was.

Instead what I found in my guacamole-copycatting process was perplexing, frustrating, and even a little mind-bending. The good news is that if you continue to read on, you’ll eventually find a very delicious recipe for what we will call a “Chipotle-inspired” guacamole.

What you will not find, however, are clear answers from Chipotle.
