Magic 4-Ingredient Fajita Guacamole Recipe. You won’t believe the power of these four simple ingredients!
My brother Joel, and his family, recently visited us from Texas. We spent the week playing at the lake, reminiscing over old family stories, and cooking together.
One evening, I was preparing a guacamole recipe with endless ingredients, as my family all sat around the kitchen island talking.
After watching me for a while, my brother said, “You know what I do? I make guacamole with fresh pre-made pico de gillo and fajita seasoning, so I don’t have to buy and chop so many ingredients.”
Leave it to an older brother to point out I’d been prepping my guacamole for far too long.
My brother is a pretty smart guy. Therefore I decided to give his quickie Magic 4-Ingredient Fajita Guacamole method a try last week.
You know what? His shortcut created a batch of amazing guacamole. Good job, big brother!
In this Magic 4-Ingredient Fajita Guacamole, the fresh avocados and lime juice create the base of the recipe.
Just smash them together until the guac is as smooth as you like it.
The pre-made refrigerated pico de gillo offers fresh chunky goodness. While Old El Paso Fajita Seasoning Mix provides bold complex flavor.
From the fajita mix you get all the seasoning you need including: salt, a variety of spices, and an underlying smokey quality that gives the guacamole that little extra something!
I renege. My brother is not a pretty smart guy. He is a genius.
Joel’s Magic 4-Ingredient Fajita Guacamole made with Old El Paso Fajita Seasoning is an absolute must-make this summer. Especially when you are in a hurry!

NOTES: If making ahead, press piece of plastic over the surface of the guacamole, removing any air bubbles. This will help to keep the guacamole from browning.
