Guacamole

When I was in grad school, money was tight and there were only few restaurants that I could afford to frequent and one of them was Chipotle. I loved their Burritos and Fajitas since they were so filling but was bummed that they would charge extra for Guacamole  – the creamy spread made from Avocados. More often than not, I would have to skip adding it to my Burrito but when I did, it felt like a King’s meal. Fast forward, a decade later  – I usually get this spread from Costco but I decided to make it at home this time. When I tried to look up the recipe on the internet, I found one on the Chipotle website and decided that was it! No more searching. This time I cannot say adapted from so and so website – simply because I did not want mess with the original. I did not have jalapeno peppers so I substituted it for thai peppers with the same result. If you follow the recipe, you will realize it is such a simple one and I can’t believe I waited a decade to make this at home.  Better late than never! 🙂

To give it a different spin, I would recommend adding a clove of garlic, finely crushed and finely cut tomatoes, after they are seeded. Enjoy with some tortilla chips or as a creamy spread to your sandwich!
