Other Chipotle Recipe – Copycat Recipe: Chipotle’s Cilantro Lime Rice

First off I LOVE Chipotle but not the price tag. You do get a lot of food at Chipotle but it is more wallet- friendly to make the copy cat versions at home ;) I decided to tackle Chipotle’s Guacamole. Plus it is gluten-free.

I was able to see the official Chipotle’s Guacamole and took the time to size it down for you :)

Now there are many copy cat recipes for this guacamole out there BUT many forget the secret ingredient — Lemon Juice !

What You Need

3 Ripe Avocados

1/2 Cup of Chopped Red Onions

1/2 Cup of Chopped Cilantro

1/3 Cup Chopped Jalapeno

1/8 Cup of Lemon and Lime Juice — 80/20 ratio

Pinch of salt

What To Do

Place Avocados in a bowl and mash with a fork – You will want to leave it a little chunky.

Add all the other ingredients and mix

and Enjoy!!!!

hi, does 1/8 cup of lemon and lime juice mean 1/8 cup of each, or mix the juice and use 1/8 cup of it? thanks
Sandra

Not of each
80% lime
20% Lemon

Hi! It sounds perfect, baring one thing: Chipotle puts salt in theirs as well. Normally 3 tablespoons for a batch, so I would recommend a pinch. Otherwise, that’s a fantastic copy!
Cheers!

I just made this and my hubby and I LOVE it!! I wouldn’t change a thing, although, I didn’t measure anything!! I do have one question, this is the first time I have ever used cilantro, do I chop it while it is still on the stems?

Budget Savvy Diva March 4, 2012 at 9:16 pm

I am so glad you liked it :) You can eat the stems in cilantro – I usually only use the leaves.

NANCY March 4, 2012 at 9:20 pm

How do you chop just the leaves? Thats what I did, but I wasn’t able to get them very finely chopped.

Budget Savvy Diva March 4, 2012 at 9:27 pm

I actually have a herb knife. Basically take all the leaves and squish them together and cut them as finely as possible… I hope that helps.

Thanks for the recipe! You can also use kitchen scissors to cut up parsley or cilantro leaves. Very easy!

It’s Kosher Salt

Hi, just for clarification is it 80% lime or lemon because in the recipe you have it listed as Lemon then Lime (80-20) but in an above comment you have it as Lime then Lemon. The original makes me think that it should be 80 percent lemon as lemon is the first listed.

I made this a month ago and can’t wait to make it again. Fantastic!

I see you placed your wooden cutting board on top of a hot stove element. Apparently, we are kitchen sisters :P Anyway, I wonder just how much a difference the cilantro makes, as I’ve been making guac for years without it.

Cilantro makes it AmAzInG! Try it, it gives it a fresh taste.

This looks amazing!

Very easy and straight forward. I’m a total guacamole addict so I’ll be making this very soon.

So glad I found this. I love anything Chipotle makes. Can’t wait to try it.

I made this and the rice two days ago. It was a hit! The husband and I went out of our comfort zone with the cilantro lime rice, but was surprised how much we liked it. I will be making it again next week :) Thanks to you BSD I can cook and have my husband like it ;)

Bacon! I thought they used bacon as well?

When you say chopped jalapeno – is that with or without the seeds? I know if I like spicy use the seeds, but what does Chipolte do?

Reply

Watson April 24, 2013 at 10:22 pm

Without the seeds

Christine S. May 17, 2013 at 12:07 am

This guac is amazing. 2 legit 2 quit.

Donna M February 3, 2014 at 12:25 am

Amazing. I didn’t even measure anything and also left out the jalapenos and it was amazing! Thanks for the great recipe. I was wondering how to cut the cilantro but I saw the answer above. I will try that next time because my cilantro wasn’t very fine but it was still good. Made crock pot chicken taco meat and ate it with this yummy guacamole.

I’ve been looking for a copy cat of Chipotle’s guac! Everyone that I find doesn’t taste quite the same :( This is on my list next to try!

Reply

Jenn Westad April 4, 2014 at 8:06 pm

OMG…I go there just for the guac. YES!

We are doing a guacamole roundup on Friday for Guacamole Day and wondered if we could include this delicious recipe and picture in our post. There would be a link for the recipe to your post along with your blogs name.
Thanks so much.
