  • 2 medium Hass avocados peeled and pitted
  • 1 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1-2 tsp finely chopped chili peppers or to taste
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp finely ground sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper or red pepper flakes
  • dried parsley for garnish


  • In a small bowl, use a fork to mash the avocados with the lemon juice, chopped chili peppers (if using), garlic powder, salt, black pepper, and cayenne until mostly creamy and broken down, leaving some small pieces of avocado. Garnish with parsley, if desired.
  • Use immediately or set the guacamole in the fridge, covered with plastic wrap, until ready to use. It will keep for up to 4 days.


To help keep leftover guacamole from turning brown, squeeze some lemon juice over the top before covering it.
