We’d wager you love tacos and eat them on the reg– here’s a great recipe for an easy, healthy guacamole recipe! This guacamole recipe includes a smoky, chipotle kick and adjustable levels of heat & spice so you can adjust based on your tolerance. Arrrriba!


  • 2 lbs avocado ( 34 large, 78 small)
  • 1/2 bunch of cilantro, chopped
  • 12 cloves of garlic, minced (to taste)
  • 12 jalapeno or serrano peppers
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice (12 limes)
  • 2.5 teaspoons salt (more or less to taste)
  • 23 teaspoons chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
  • 1 teaspoon fresh black pepper


  1. Chop the cilantro, garlic, and jalapeno pepper.
  2. Slice the avocados in half, remove the seeds, and place the flesh into a large mixing bowl.
  3. Add lime juice, chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, salt & pepper. Add the garlic, cilantro, and pepper.
  4. Mash with a fork for a rough, chunky, rustic guacamole. Mash with a potato masher for a smooth guacamole. Use a food processor for a creamy, sauce-like guacamole.
  5. Taste for seasonings. More salt? More lime juice? More heat?


** Guacamole keeps for about 3 days in the fridge. Browning or oxidation is normal and is safe to eat. To prevent guacamole from turning brown, cover the surface with a thin layer of oil or water or plastic wrap.

** We recommend cutting avocados with a cross hatch pattern and mashing them in a bowl with a fork for a thick and chunky consistency!
