With only 5 ingredients in this Spicy Chipotle Pepper Guacamole, smoked chipotles peppers in adobo sauce take it to a new flavor level. Everyone loves guacamole, but not everyone likes it prepared the same way,  how do you like it? Side note, this is a guacamole recipe without cilantro.

Scooping up guacamole with a tortilla chip

Are you a chunky or smooth fan? I used to have to have mine really smooth, but I’ve started to prefer chunky over smooth and I’m really not a fan of this dip made in the blender where you lose all the texture.

Chipotles in Adobo are the easy secret to the spice and smokiness in this Spicy Chipotle Pepper Guacamole. I use them in my Chipotle Chicken Burger and even went so far as to adding them to my Bacon BBQ Sauce.

My signature/go-to guacamole recipe has Tabasco Chipotle sauce along with fresh tomato. I’ve also been known to add jalapeño or serrano pepper for spice, but I love the spicy, smoked version.

How to keep guacamole from turning brown

If you are adding lime juice  (and you should be), this helps a lot. If you want to store it in the fridge, drizzle a little more lime juice on the top and put plastic wrap directly onto the guacamole, then seal with a lid. You want to keep as much air away from it as possible. You can pour off the excess lime juice when you are ready to eat it.
