Guacamole Deviled Eggs

Now that you know how to hard boil an egg, you’re going to love this delicious snack.

Guacamole Deviled Eggs are a great appetizer for your St. Patrick’s Day festivities, and even a great way to use up those dyed Easter Eggs!

Guacamole Deviled Eggs

I love me some deviled eggs at Easter time, but I’m not always crazy about all the mayo.

Avocados are always a great substitute for mayo because they are creamy, and full of great flavor.

In a classic deviled egg, you would also add a little mustard to give it a little tangy-ness.

In these Guacamole Deviled Eggs, the use of lime juice works double time for tangy-ness and also to help keep the bright green color of the avocado.

By using Gourmet Garden’s garlic and cilantro, these Guacamole Deviled Eggs come together in no time!

I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed this variation on the classic deviled egg. They are so fresh and tasty.

To make them look fancy, you can throw the filling in a frosting bag fitted with a star tip, then pipe the filling into the empty egg white.

Or you can just scoop the filling into the egg with a spoon. Either way it’s dang good.

I even had leftover filling that I spread on top of a piece of toast… heaven.

If you’re into a bit of a kick, sprinkle on some cayenne pepper – oh mama.

But if you’re serving it to a crowd, you might want to stick with some smoked paprika to give it a beautiful color and just a little hint of smokiness.
