Guac and roll

While the summer sunshine’s been a little spotty recently, once it really gets going you’ll want to up your picnic basket arsenal. We’re always partial to a good avocado recipe and luckily, the team over at Chipotle sorted us out. Their guacamole is a thing of beauty and thankfully, you’ll be able to eat it with whatever you want as they’ve just launched Eat to Your Own Beat – an online ingredients guide for anybody with dietary requirements. (Thanks, guys.)

However, if you’re down to get a little messy and whip up your own guac – they’ve also shared their secret guacamole recipe with us below. Bring on the tortilla chips!
