Copycat Chipotle Guacamole (and Tips on How to Make Sure it WON’T Turn Brown in 5 seconds!)

Ok… if I had known how easy it is to replicate Chipotle’s guacamole I would have been eating it for every meal of the day. Seriously. I honestly can’t believe I never even thought about the ingredients that go into it and how simple they are! I found this “recipe” (I used quotes because it’s so simple it’s not really even a recipe!) from Culinary Hill.

Ingredients

  • Large Haas avocado (moderately still firm… no mushy avocados here!)
  • Lemon juice
  • Lime juice
  • Fresh cilantro, finely chopped, to taste
  • sea salt, to taste
  • red onion, diced (I didn’t have any onion on hand, so I used onion powder and it was surprisingly delicious)

Directions

  1. Halve the avocado and scoop out each half with a spoon (NO chopping aloud!). Save the pit… it will come in handy later!
  2. Mash the avocado whole in a bowl.
  3. Add lemon and lime juice to the avocado and mix well. This step helps keep the avocado from browning quickly and gives it some great flavor.
  4. Finely chop the cilantro and red onion and add to the bowl. If you don’t happen to have onion, onion powder works great to add some flavor.

How to Keep Guacamole from Turning Brown

Place the pit in the middle of the guacamole mixture to keep it from turning brown quickly. Add Saran Wrap over the guacamole and press firmly against the guacamole before adding a lid to help minimize oxidation. Voila! Your guacamole may hold for 5 minutes instead of 5 seconds. You’re welcome.
