In honor of Cinco de Mayo, one of the best holidays for me and my fellow Mexican food lovers, today’s Friday Favorite is a food – Chipotle’s guacamole. I know it’s only el cuatro de Mayo, but I’m celebrating early. I love Mexican food and I LOVE Chipotle’s guacamole. I think they make the best guacamole. Ever. I suppose I could tell you about how guacamole has healthy fats and minerals and all sorts of good for you stuff, but I don’t really care about any of that. It’s delicious. Yum.
Want to make it yourself at home? Try one of these great recipes (which really do taste just about like the real thing).

Chipotle’s Signature Guacamole Recipe
2 large ripe Hass avocado, peeled and pitted
2 tsp. fresh lime juice
2 tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro
1/4 cup finely chopped red onions
1 clove of garlic, finely minced
1 jalapeño chili, seeded and chopped (I have heard serrano is better, but I suppose it’s personal preference)
1/2 tsp. salt (Chipotle uses Kosher)
