While everyone loves a great bowl or a delicious burrito, the reality is that Chipotle and avocados are always a winning combination. Even though the brand might showcase celebrity orders or special offerings, the reality is the brand appreciates that good for you and tasty food always goes hand in hand.

When it comes to avocados, the quick service restaurant is overflowing with avo-goodness. Since people can’t get enough of that fruit, it leads to some interesting facts.

According to Chipotle, 4.5 million cases of avocados are used per year. That approximate number equates to about 100 million pounds of fruit. If you think that your avocado tree is blossoming, just think of the amount of fruit needed to fill that order.

While your backyard tree might not be supplying your local restaurant, Jason Mraz is a “longstanding avocado supplier” for Chipotle. Wonder if his avocado hit all the right flavor notes.

Since Chipotle is always looking to push the conversation in a forward thinking way, the company used avocado pits to create its avo dyed good lines. This upcycling concept shows that a sustainable concept is both good for the environment and is a fashionable look for Chipotle fans. Isn’t it great when a plan comes together?

Lastly, the secret to Chipotle’s infamous guacamole isn’t really complicated. The recipe features just six ingredients, “avocados, citrus juice, cilantro, red onion, jalapenos, and salt.” When that guac craving hits, anyone can try to mix up their version at home.
