I was bored with traditional deviled eggs and had been trying to find more ways to cook with avocados. I made these for a Kentucky Derby party and all 24 were gone within minutes! Next time I will need to make a double batch.

Ingredient Checklist

Instructions Checklist
  • Place eggs in a saucepan; cover with water. Bring to a boil, remove from heat, and let eggs stand in hot water for 15 minutes. Remove eggs from hot water, cool under cold running water, and peel.

  • Stir together mashed avocado, onion, tomato, cilantro, lime juice, jalapeno, and chopped garlic; season with salt and pepper. Refrigerate guacamole, tightly covered, for 1 hour.

  • Drain pickled garlic cloves and minced pickled jalapeno on a plate lined with paper towels.

  • Cut each egg in half lengthwise; set yolks aside for another use. Clean away any remaining yolk from egg white halves with a wet paper towel. Place egg whites cut-side up on a serving platter.

  • Spoon a generous amount of guacamole into each egg white half; top each deviled egg with a pickled garlic clove. Sprinkle minced pickled jalapeno, salt, and black pepper over deviled eggs.

Cook's Notes:

The guacamole and eggs can be made a day ahead. If making guacamole the day before, make sure you store in an air-tight container. You will likely have some guacamole left over; sometimes I double the ingredients to make sure I have plenty for guacamole and chips.

Editor's Note:

The nutrition data for this recipe includes the values for whole eggs, although egg yolks are set aside for another use. Nutrition data also include the full amount of guacamole; the actual amount of guacamole consumed may vary.

This is outstanding just as it is. I made half exactly as recipe and then thought about the egg yolks..so I added them but in chunks and it was great also. I will certainly make again Read More

I'm wondering where I went wrong! This didn't work for us. I followed the recipe---even setting aside the yolks (which could have helped in retrospect). The flavors didn't come together for me and so I'm glad that I made only a partial batch. I hope someone else will make this to prove me wrong! Read More
