1/4 tsp kosher salt
What to do:
1. Cut avocados in half and remove pits carefully
2. Scoop the avocados into a bowl
3. Toss and coat with lime juice
4. Add the salt and mash until it's a smooth consistency
5. Fold in remaining ingredients and mix

It's a remarkably easy recipe to follow, and, as is often the case with the best guacamole, it calls for fresh ingredients. For the full step-by-step, you can watch Chef Chad's video below:
Since the restaurant industry has been hammered by the coronavirus-related shutdown, many national food chains are actively seeking ways to keep their brands relevant and companies afloat as many states either slowly re-open or get closer to reopening. Recent reports suggest that only four national food chains posted a profit in the first quarter, which suggests many restaurants may not survive post-pandemic.
Sharing their original and beloved guacamole recipe may just be Chipotle's attempt to keep their online orders and reputation alive. And hey, we appreciate it—especially considering Cinco de Mayo is next week!
