What’s in This Chipotle Guacamole Recipe?

Chips, limes, lime juice, jalapeno, garlic, avocados, cilantro, and purple onions.
  • Hass Avocados: The star of any traditional guacamole recipe, Hass avocados are chosen for their creamy texture and rich flavor, providing the perfect base for this delicious avocado dip.
  • Cilantro: This herb adds a fresh, citrusy lift to the guacamole, enhancing the flavors of the other ingredients with its vibrant, green leaves.
  • Limes: The citrus juice from fresh limes not only adds a bright, tangy taste to the guacamole but also helps preserve the vibrant green color of the avocados.
  • Purple Onion: Finely chopped purple onion introduces a subtle sweetness paired with a crisp texture, balancing the creamy richness of the avocados.
  • Jalapeño Slices: For those who enjoy a bit of heat, jalapeños add a spicy kick to the guacamole without overwhelming the other flavors.
  • Minced Garlic: A touch of minced garlic brings a pungent depth to the dip, rounding out the guacamole’s overall taste profile.

Substitutions and Variations

  • If you like your spicy guacamole HOT, add more jalapeños!
  • Remove the seeds from the peppers before chopping them up if you want it to be less hot.
  • Feel free to add in olives, bell pepper, or tomatoes if you would like!
  • For a richer flavor, use lime juice from the bottle. This will give your guacamole a more authentic flavor. However, using fresh lime juice will give it a subtler taste and will keep it from turning brown as quickly.
  • Not a fan of cilantro? Leave it out of this Chipotle Guacamole recipe.
  • Not keen on purple (red) onion? You can use white onion, which doesn’t have as strong a flavor.

Recipe Tips

  • Choose ripe avocados. They should be dark green and have no bruises. If they are too ripe, the guacamole will turn brown quickly after you make it. Need to buy them ahead of time? Try to buy them about a day before you need them to allow them time to ripen.
  • If you do not have a food processor, feel free to mince by hand or chop with a knife. However, the guacamole will probably be a bit chunkier and less creamy than if you use a food processor.
  • Make sure that the ingredients are small enough pieces that they can all blend evenly.
  • To make peeling avocados easier, mash the avocado (or slice it in half) and scoop it out with a spoon, rather than peeling each piece by hand!

Storing Tips 

Store leftover guacamole in the refrigerator in an airtight container. It will last up to three days before it starts to go bad.

While freezing guacamole is possible, it’s essential to know that the texture might change slightly once thawed. To freeze, place the guacamole in a zip-top freezer bag and press out as much air as possible before sealing. Spread the guacamole evenly in the bag for a thin layer, making thawing easier. Freeze for up to three months. 

When ready to enjoy, thaw the guacamole in the refrigerator overnight. Remember, it’s best served fresh, but freezing is a viable option if you have leftovers you can’t finish right away.

Serving Suggestions

This guacamole pairs beautifully with a variety of snacks and dishes. For a classic serving suggestion, enjoy it with seasoned baked tortilla chips or fresh veggie sticks such as carrots, celery, and bell peppers for a healthier option. It also makes a fantastic topping for baked rolled tacos, burritos, or chicken and cheese enchiladas, adding a creamy, flavorful twist. 

For a unique twist, try spreading it on toast for a quick and nutritious breakfast or snack. Additionally, this guacamole can be a delicious side to grilled meats or fish, providing a refreshing contrast to the smoky flavors. 

Recipe FAQs

Can I make this guacamole ahead of time?

Yes, you can make this guacamole up to a day in advance. After preparing, press a piece of plastic wrap directly onto the surface of the guacamole to prevent oxidation and refrigerate until ready to serve.

What can I do if my guacamole turns brown?

If your guacamole has turned brown on the top layer, it’s usually just a result of oxidation. Simply scrape off the top layer; the guacamole underneath should still be green and fresh.

Can I add fruits to this guacamole recipe?

Absolutely! Adding diced fruits such as mango, pineapple, or even pomegranate seeds can introduce a sweet contrast to the guacamole’s creamy and spicy flavor profile.

How can I keep my guacamole green longer?

Adding lime juice helps prevent browning due to its citric acid content, which slows down oxidation. Storing the guacamole with the pit in it or covering the surface with plastic wrap can also help keep it green longer.
