Guacamole Deviled Eggs made with mashed avocado, jalapeno pepper and chipotle pepper powder are a quick and easy appetizer everyone loves!
These avocado deviled eggs are made with no mayo, so they're lighter and healthier than the traditional recipe. If you're looking for easy appetizers for Easter -- or anytime -- you're going to love these spicy guacamole deviled eggs!
We always make a ton of hard boiled eggs at Easter. Instant Pot hard boiled eggs are super easy, and you can make a bunch of them in no time! I use them for potato salad, egg salad and to make stuffed eggs. Even my picky kids, who normally wouldn't touch an egg without drowning it in ketchup, will happily scarf down some deviled eggs without complaining.
The nice thing about this healthy deviled egg recipe is that you use avocado instead of the traditional mayonnaise, which lightens them up. Basically, I took my simple recipe for guacamole, made a couple of changes, and used that to stuff the hard boiled eggs.
My family absolutely loves guacamole, and whenever I make a bowl of it, it disappears almost instantly. Believe me, these guacamole eggs were gone just as fast! My family thought they were the BEST deviled eggs ever!
How to Make Avocado Deviled Eggs
First, you need hard boiled eggs. Cook them in the pressure cooker or on the stove, and let them cool down in ice water. I used 6 in this recipe.
When they were cool, I peeled them, sliced them in half and scooped the yolks into a mixing bowl. Then, I added the avocado and some lime juice.
My little guy helped mash the avocados and the egg yolks. This is a fun way to get kids involved in the kitchen because they always love to mash things up -- at least, mine do.
Then, I added a few other ingredients, and the eggs were ready to be stuffed. I keep things easy around here, so I just used a small spoon, but you can get fancy and pipe them in if you want!
I topped the eggs with some chipotle pepper and some chopped cilantro, and they were done! If you're one of many people who think cilantro tastes like soap, go ahead and leave it out. And, if you want to cut down on the spice, just leave out the jalapeno peppers. You can also substitute smoked paprika for the chipotle powder.
How Long do Hard Cooked Eggs Last in the Fridge?
Hard boiled, or hard cooked eggs in shells are good for up to a week in the fridge. However, they're usually easier to peel right after they're cooked.
Can you Make Avocado Deviled Eggs Ahead of Time?
You can make avocado deviled eggs a few hours ahead of time as long as you use lime juice or lemon juice to prevent browning and keep them covered.
