Fans of Chipotle's famous guacamole are rejoicing after the popular food chain published the secret recipe on its website over the weekend.

Here it is:


-2 ripe Hass avocados

-2 tsp lime juice

-2 tbsp cilantro (chopped)

-1/4 cup red onion (finely chopped)

-1/2 jalapeno, including seeds (finely chopped)

-1/4 tsp kosher salt

How to do it:

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

Needless to say, Chipotle fans were overjoyed by the announcement, especially considering (as all true Chipotle know to be true) "guac is extra."

But not everyone was as impressed.
