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!

3. Scoop the avocados and place in a medium bowl.

4. Toss and coat with lime juice.

5. Add the salt and using a fork or potato masher, mash until a smooth consistency is achieved.

6. Fold in the remaining ingredients and mix well.

7. Taste the guacamole (over and over) and adjust seasoning if necessary.
