We think we’ve cracked the code to Chipotle’s famous guacamole. The secret--using equal parts fresh lemon and lime juice — adds just enough brightness and tang. If you're feeling fancy, go all out and add a couple tablespoons of diced tomatoes.



  1. Mash together the avocado, lemon juice, lime juice and 1 1/2 teaspoons salt in a mixing bowl until creamy. Fold in the cilantro, red onion and jalapeno with a spoon or spatula. Adjust the salt if needed.
  2. The guacamole can be made up to 2 hours in advance. Store in an airtight container and smooth a sheet of plastic wrap on the surface without any air pockets. Refrigerate until ready to serve. 

Cook’s Note

Jalapenos have varying degrees of heat. It is best to try a small piece of jalapeno to determine spice level, then add according to your preference.
