Chipotle’s guacamole has always held something of a cult-like status among fans of the Mexican burrito chain due in large part to the fact that — yeah, we know! — guac is extra.

While many copycat recipes have littered the internet for years, on Friday, the chain’s culinary director took to Instagram to show the world exactly how the restaurant’s signature creamy dip is made.

On Thursday, Chad Brauze, an executive chef for Chipotle, posted a video to chain’s official Instagram account in which he shares the chain’s signature guacamole recipe and provides a very thorough demonstration on how to do it. The recipe is simple and basic, which is probably why so many find it irresistible.

Unlike fake versions which have included add-ins like garlic or tomatoes, Chipotle’s guac uses just six ingredients: avocados, lime juice, cilantro, red onion, jalapeño and kosher salt.

One surprising pro tip to achieving that extra-smooth consistency with a few delightful chunks? Brauze uses a large metal whisk, instead of a fork or spoon, to help break up the avocado halves.

This isn’t the first time the chain has shared the ingredients in its guac, but it is the first time the chain has posted a video tutorial showcasing how to make it. The demo is very in tune with the self-quarantine era, in which many chefs, celebrities and wannabe chefs, are taking to social media to share what they’ve been cooking at home.
