Delicious Chipotle Guacamole
Prepare These Ingredients

To make a delicious batch of guacamole, you’ll need:

  • Two teaspoons of lime juice

Guacamole Ingredients
Prep the Avocados

Quality avocados are the secret to excellent guacamole. A gentle squeeze test will let you know if an avocado is ripe – it shouldn’t be hard or mushy but just able to give light pressure. When you’re ready to make the guac, cut both avocados in half. Remove the pits and scoop out all the avocado flesh into a big bowl. Add lime juice and salt. Use a fork to mash the avocados until you get a pretty smooth consistency with a few chunks left.

Be sure to taste the guac and adjust the seasoning to your liking by adding more salt or lime juice if needed. You can use this guac as a dip for chips, filler for homemade burritos, a topping for tacos, and more!

Tips and Tricks

Guac tends to turn brown quickly because of oxidation. The lime juice is meant to slow that process down. If you want to store your guac in the fridge for a while, it’s best to put it in an airtight container or cover the bowl with clean film, making sure it touches the surface of the guacamole to keep the air out.
