    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!

    1. Choose the right avocado. It should feel squishy yet firm (like the palm of your hand), and be a nice dark green colour on the inside.

    2. Cut the avocado in half and the remove the pit (carefully!).

    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.
