Since getting food from restaurants at this point can be an exercise in aggravating your anxiety, Chipotle has decided to take some pity on all of us.
The beloved burrito chain has decided to spill the black beans on one of its most cherished menu items: guacamole. While you can obviously find recipes for guacamole strewn across the internet like the tortilla chip crumbs that currently decorate your couch, there’s just something different about Chipotle’s signature guac.
The dip that we all gladly pay extra for can now be made in your own kitchen using some pretty basic ingredients and no special equipment. On Twitter last week, Chipotle shared the full recipe and it looks pretty simple.
Chipotle Guac Recipe, a thread
2 ripe Hass avocados
2 tsp lime juice
2 tbsp cilantro (chopped)
1/4 cup red onion (diced)
1/2 jalapeño including seeds (diced)
1/4 tsp kosher salt

As you can see, you might have all the ingredients in your kitchen already, especially if you regularly make Mexican-inspired dishes. The tweet has been liked more than 15,000 times in a week, so you might expect a fight for avocados next time you order groceries!
Apparently, Chipotle is including mini bottles of tabasco sauce with digital orders, if you like to spice up your guacamole or burrito:
In case that recipe was still a little too tough to follow — or if you’re more of a visual learner — Chipotle also shared a detailed video walkthrough of making it on Instagram. In the 26-minute clip, Chef Chad Brauze, the company’s director of menu development, shows you how to make Chipotle guac like a true expert, even suggesting some mix-ins that make it even better.
Now, if we can just get them to release the recipe for the Chipotle honey vinaigrette, we’ll be set for the rest of the quarantine!
