Guacamole Deviled Eggs: The perfect healthy, dairy-free, paleo friendly, protein packed snack or party food

I used to think deviled eggs were really weird. It probably goes back to when I was convinced I hated mayo. Okay, I still don’t not a mayo lover, but I also am not one of those people who won’t eat anything that’s been on the same plate as mayo, either. I feel like that’s rare. Mayo neutralism. It seems to be one of those polarizing things like eggnog.

Now eggnog I do feel very strongly about. In a love way. But mayo? Meh…I guess I just don’t really care, which is probably why I don’t use it. And I definitely didn’t use it here, but I guess what my point was is that I thought I hated deviled eggs because I thought I hated mayo. Kind of how I now “hate” hollandaise sauce, but really only because I haven’t tried it, and I won’t try it because I know deep down that I will probably like it, and the last thing I need in the world is to like yet an other thing that is filled with unnecessary calories. My love of pizza and chocolate has that covered. Oh, and eggnog.

One day I went over to my friend Emily’s house, and there were green deviled eggs. Ummm can we talk about how I just realized that these are green eggs….like green eggs and ham. I am freaking Dr. Seuss over here, but I just realized it. I should have rhymed this entire post, but then it would have been like that awful rhyming episode of How I Met Your Mother. I love that show, but that episode was the worst.

Okay, I’m sorry. There were green eggs, and I don’t remember if she called them guacamole deviled eggs or if that’s just what they reminded me of, but it was love at first bite. So much love that I had to recreate them. The result is a fresh, flavorful and totally addicting deviled egg that is unlike any you’ve had before.

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Yield: 2 dozen

Guacamole Deviled Eggs

Ingredients

  • 12 hard boiled eggs
  • 1 medium avocado, peeled and pitted
  • 1/2 lime, zest & juice
  • small handful fresh cilantro, finely chopped
  • 1 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped jalapeno
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • dash red pepper flakes
  • generous pinch each salt and pepper
  • cayenne pepper for topping

Instructions

  1. Split hard boiled eggs length wise and scoop the yolks out into a medium mixing bowl. Add avocado, lime (zest and juice), cilantro, garlic, jalapeno, cumin, red pepper, salt and pepper to egg yolks and beat until well combined (I used an immersion blender).
  2. Use a piping bag, extra small cookie scoop or spoon to transfer egg yolk mixture evenly between the egg whites (you may have some extra left over). Top each egg with a small pinch of cayenne pepper. Eggs are best served day of, but leftovers may be refrigerated in an airtight container for 3-5 days.

    I am another mayo neutralist, but I am a total deviled egg LOVER. I think it dates back to my parents having “fancy” dinner parties and always serving deviled eggs as apps–it made me think they were special! I’ve never tried adding avocado, but since avocado is delicious, I’m pretty sure that by the transitive property, that makes these deviled eggs absolutely delicious too. Can’t wait to try them!

      Awww thanks Tina! I use Greek yogurt in place of mayo most of the time, but I love having a dairy-free alternative as well!

    • Ari says

      I agree! I’ve always loved them, but tried to avoid them. Healthier versions of my favorite unhealthy foods is pretty much what I am all about in life! :)

      That sounds delicious too, and ya know what? I find that as long as things taste really good, the people you’re serving never really care too much about how it looks. 😉

  2. […] 8. Guacamole Deviled Eggs We’ve included this guacamole recipe to show just how versatile it can be, and to spark some ideas for how you can use it in other areas of your cooking. It takes guacamole and uses it as the filling for deviled eggs. If you’re a fan of deviled eggs you simply must try it this way. Of course the base is still the egg white of a hard-boiled egg, but the yolks have been added to a batch of guacamole. This means you’re still getting the same texture, but infused with avocados, making them taste better, and making them better for you on a nutritional level. Now your deviled eggs can have fiber!

  3. […] 3. Guacamole Deviled Eggs These deviled eggs are sure to turn heads thanks to the green color of the filling. They’re green because they have guacamole in the filling. But don’t think that it’s just regular guacamole. They’ve added the egg yolks to the guac so you are getting the same consistency and texture as you do with regular deviled eggs, they’ve just upped the ante by adding avocado to the mix. These make a great St. Patrick’s Day appetizer, or just a good conversation starter at any get together. […]
