If Chipotle does one thing exceptionally right, it's guacamole. Here's how to make it at home quickly and easily, according to the pros themselves.

What You Need:

  • 2 ripe Hass 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

What To Do:

  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.
  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.
