Hass Avocados in Chipotle Guacamole - Chipotle Mexican Grill

Avocado

We use only Hass avocados because they’re the creamiest, most delicious of all avocado varieties. They're dark green and bumpy on the outside and velvety smooth on the inside, with a high fat content—but the good kind (whew). Every morning we mash the avocados by hand and make batches of guac from scratch.

FACT

Avocadabra

Avocados are the guac to our chips and, dare we say it, pretty dreamy. But they've long been prized and adored—even by the mighty Aztecs. When farmers brought the fruit (yes, it's a fruit) to the U.S., they promptly rebranded it to the name you know today because they found its original one ("ahuacate") too difficult to pronounce. As for what that word actually means in the Aztec language, well, let's just say that's what the internet's for.
