In time for summer outdoor eats
Chipotle Restaurants shares its avocado based recipe for Guacamole sauce.
For you aliens, who have just
arrived here’s a definition of guacamole:
Guacamole is an avocado-based dip
or salad first created by the Aztecs in what is now Mexico. In addition to its
use in modern Mexican cuisine it has also become part of American cuisine as a
dip, condiment and salad ingredient.
CHIPOTLE MEXICAN GRILL GUACAMOLE RECIPE
• 2 ripe Haas avocados
• 2 tsp lime juice
• 2 tbsp cilantro (chopped)
• 1/4 cup red onion (finely chopped)
• 1/2 jalapeño, including seeds (finely chopped)
• 1/4 tsp kosher salt
1. Choose the right avocado. It
should feel squishy yet firm (like the palm of your hand), and be a nice dark
green color on the inside.
2. Cut the avocado in half and
the remove the pit (carefully!)
3. Scoop the avocados and place
in a medium bowl.
4. Toss and coat with lime juice.
5. Add the salt and using a fork
or potato masher, mash until a smooth consistency is achieved.
6. Fold in the remaining
ingredients and mix well.
7. Taste the guacamole (over and
over) and adjust seasoning if necessary.
