One can never have enough of guacamole, but you’re in luck. We went into the kitchen with Chipotle to learn exactly how to make its legendary avocado dip, so you can always get your fix. The secret? A longtime recipe that comes courtesy of founder (and classically trained chef) Steve Ells.
For a complete chips-and-dip experience, serve guacamole with tortilla chips that have been tossed with lime juice and a sprinkling of salt, a signature at Chipotle Mexican Grill.
