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!
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.

I am not a mayo person, either. I make an avocado egg salad sandwich with similar ingredients. I never thought of filling the eggs. Thanks for the inspiration!
I could also see these being a lovely Cinco De Mayo treat…
I made these today and they were delicious! My husband loves avocado and he went crazy over these! Thanks for posting!
My favorite food is avocados so I had to make these! They are so unbelievably good!! Even my boyfriend who hates deviled eggs Loves them!
Looks delicious, I have to mix it together yolks and avocado ?
Yup! The avocado is basically a healthier substitution for the mayo in a classic deviled egg.
I try to sub avocado for mayo in almost everything (or greek yogurt) I love your photo of the avocado and eggs halves. Great post!
Thanks Betsy! I do the same thing with avocado and greek yogurt… I’m not a huge mayo fan. 🙂
