Easy Chipotle Guacamole Recipe for Your Summer Barbecue

JUNE 5, 2017

You love it as a dip. It's great as a sandwich spread. And you've definitely eaten it by the spoonful on more than one occasion.

This summer, kick up your go-to guacamole game by adding a hint of smoky chipotle.

Jen Betts, founder of the food and restaurant blog Food Flaunt, uses chipotle chiles-which can be found in cans in the international foods section of the grocery store-to make her guacamole pop. "This is not your everyday guac," says Betts. "The peppers add a touch of heat and earthiness without making things too spicy."

  • 4 ripe Hass avocados, flesh scooped out

  • 2 cloves fresh garlic, minced

  • 2 green onions, sliced

  • 2/3 cup chopped tomatoes

  • 1 1/2 tbsp. fresh lime juice

  • 2 tsp. canned chipotle chiles in adobo sauce (minced)

  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

  • 1 tsp. salt

  • Preparation:
    Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mash together to desired consistency. For creamier guac, add 1/2 cup of sour cream.
