In 2015, Chipotle Mexican Grill released its guacamole recipe. The signature guacamole is made with 2 ripe Hass avocados, 2 teaspoons lime juice, 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro, 1/4 cup finely chopped red onion, 1/2 finely chopped jalape��o pepper and 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt.

To make this recipe, cut the avocados in half and remove the pits. Scoop out the avocado and place in a medium bowl. Toss the avocados with lime juice to coat and add salt. Next, use a fork or potato masher to mash until the avocados have reached a smooth consistency. Fold in the cilantro, red onion and jalape��o and mix well. Taste the guacamole and adjust seasoning as desired.

Another easy guacamole recipe comes from Food Network personality Ina Garten. This 15-minute guacamole requires 4 ripe Hass avocados, 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice, 8 dashes hot pepper sauce,

1/2 cup finely diced red onion, 1 large minced garlic clove, 1 teaspoon kosher salt, 1 teaspoon ground black pepper and 1 medium tomato, seeded and diced.

To make this recipe, cut the avocados in half, remove the pits and place in a large bowl. Immediately add all ingredients except tomato to the bowl and toss. Use a sharp knife to cut the avocados until they are finely diced. Add the tomatoes and season with more salt and pepper to taste.
