When I am looking for an easy guacamole recipe that I can though together in minutes, this is the recipe I reach for. I just toss everything in a bowl and mash together with a fork.

This 5 ingredient guacamole recipe is flexible so feel free to change it up based on your preferences.

What to Serve This Guacamole With

This easy guacamole is great on it’s own with tortilla chips but you can also add it to your meals to boost the flavor. Here are a few of my favorite lunch and dinner recipes to add this guacamole to.

Guacamole Variations

One thing I love about guacamole is you can really change it up based on your preferences and what you have. Here are a few variations you can try.

  • Make it spicy. Add in a chopped jalapeño or a few dashes of hot sauce.
  • Amp up the garlic. You can use a grated garlic clove instead of garlic powder to really add a garlic flavor to the dish.
  • Add in some tomatoes. Dice up a Roma tomato to mix in with your guacamole to give it a bright fresh flavor.
  • Reduce red onions. If you are sensitive to raw onions feel free to use a little less or just remove all together.
