Have I mentioned that I think Chipotle rocks? If I had to pick a quick place to eat out, Chipotle would totally win, hands down. I love that they use only natural ingredients, and I can easily make my order low carb and gluten-free without compromising on taste or asking for complicated subtitutions.
My favorite thing at Chipotle is a big salad with beef barbacoa, which I love so much that I’ve already made a Chipotle copycat beef barbacoa version in lettuce wraps. Stay tuned for that recipe in a few months!
I have to say, though, the best part about Chipotle is their ah-mazing guacamole. When I found out that they posted the recipe publicly on their website, I knew I had to give it a try.
Crispy cheddar cheese chips + Chipotle’s amazing guacamole = one of my favorite appetizers ever.
These pretty little apps are low carb and gluten-free, of course, but they incorporate such rich flavors that you won’t miss the carbs one bit. The sharp cheddar flavors pair perfectly with the creamy avocado, while the jalapenos provide the perfect subtle (or not so subtle) kick. Feel free to add more or less jalapenos depending on your spiciness threshold. The lime juice delays oxidation, so the guac will stay bright green for almost a whole day.
I made these as appetizers for my daughter’s birthday party, and they were the first thing to disappear! I topped each chip individually so that they were easy for people to grab, but you could make it even simpler by just scooping the guacamole with the chips directly. Either way, once you try these I think they’ll become one of your favorites, too.
