I am a sucker for some good guacamole.Ready in minutes, this fast and simple Better than Chipotle Guacamole is fresh and full of bright flavors. Perfect as an appetizer for the holiday or game day, as well as on Mexican food. Healthy, vegan, vegetarian. Three Olives Branch | www.threeolivesbranch.comI have not always been an avocado or guacamole fan, but this Better than Chipotle Guacamole has become a staple in our house, both as an appetizer as well as with Mexican food.  A lot of people I know that do not like avocados or guacamole have a problem with the texture.  Leaving some avocados chunky and adding the mix-ins of tomato, onion, etc. are a great way to try and change their mind!

Three Olives Branch | www.threeolivesbranch.comChipotle, the restaurant, is known for having some great guacamole.  And I do love theirs as well, however I am partial to my own because I have some added veggies in there for some crunch, texture, and flavor.  I keep it fresh and light by only using fresh ingredients, not crowding them with too many add-ins, and letting the flavors shine.

Three Olives Branch | www.threeolivesbranch.comIt makes me sad when people do not like cilantro 🙁 But did you know that it is actually a biological thing where some people think it tastes like soap? So interesting!  And I am so glad that I do not have that problem!

Three Olives Branch | www.threeolivesbranch.comI love to serve up the Better than Chipotle Guacamole in a molcajete, this stone bowl with feet that you see in the pictures.  It adds some festive flair and is a great show piece.  You can find a similar one here but I am also in love with this one that looks like a pig!

Healthy, vegan, vegetarian. Three Olives Branch | www.threeolivesbranch.comFinding the perfect avocados can be difficult.  I feel like I am playing an avocado roulette at the store!  My trick is to find ones that are oblong and pear shaped instead of ones that are more round (rounder avocados mean they could have larger pits, hence forcing it to look round).  And I also try to find ones that are pretty firm but just barely squish under the pressure of your finger.  If they squish too easily, most likely they are already over ripe.  Definitely won the avocado roulette this go around!  Check out that perfect avocado!

Better than Chipotle Guacamole

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 7 minutes
Servings: 1 cups

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Scoop avocado flesh into a small bowl. Mash with a fork until you reach your desired consistency.
  • Drizzle with olive oil. Add tomato, red onion, jalapeno, garlic, lime juice, cilantro, and salt. Stir to combine.
  • Cover the guacamole with saran wrap by pressing the plastic directly against the guacamole, all the way to the edges. You want to keep the air away from the avocado so that it does not turn brown.
  • Refrigerate for at least two hours for the flavors to meld and for the dip to chill. Adjust seasoning as needed.

Notes

Make it spicier by adding additional jalapenos or substituting for a spicier pepper such as Serrano.
You can find a similar molcajete here but I am also in love with this one that looks like a pig!

    • Hi Rachel,
      I used to be the same way! But now I am obsessed with it! I found at first that it was easier to get used to the texture if I increased the amount of crunchy ingredients, so you could give that a shot! More onion, pepper, etc.
