Chipotle Guacamole

Total Time

Prep: 15 min. + chilling


3 cups

My guacamole is so good because it has just a hint of smoke from the chipotle pepper. Stir in the chopped pepper or put a dollop in the center of the dip so people who aren't into the pepper can scoop around it. —Gayle Sullivan, Salem, Massachusetts
