How to make Chipotle Guacamole
There are two quick and easy ways to make Chipotle guac at home. You can either mix up your guac by hand with an avocado masher, or you can toss all the ingredients into a food processor or blender. Using an avocado masher is our recommended method for this recipe because it produces an authentic, thick texture that’s ideal for dipping.
However, you can replicate that same texture when when using a food processor or blender – it just takes some practice. You’ll want to use the pulse feature on your blender or food processor to ensure the guacamole keeps its texture. Chipotle’s guacamole contains chunks of avocado and onion, so if you truly want to replicate it, you won’t want to leave the blender run or it will be extremely smooth.
How to keep guacamole fresh?
You can use the clingiest saran wrap to keep your guac from browning, but after several hours, you’ll notice your once lime green creation turning shades. To prevent browning, add your fresh guacamole to an airtight container, followed by about a half an inch of water to coat the top of the guac. Place the lid on top, refrigerate, and enjoy the freshness up to two days later!
How long does guacamole last?
Guacamole won’t stay fresh for longer than a couple of days. It’s at its best within the first 24 hours. If you get store-bought guac that lasts longer, it’s sure to be filled with lots of preservatives.
