This is a twist on the traditional deviled egg. I usually use 1 or 2 fewer yolks for the filling.

This recipe was a great find. I loved the creaminess of the yolk and avocado mixture. The lime juice was also detectable, which we enjoyed. I only made 3 hard-boiled eggs and used all the yolks in the recipe. Yes, I did have extra filling, but I just finished it on a cracker or two. The one change I made was an optional item. Instead of the dash of hot sauce, I added a sprinkle of the cayenne pepper. Eggs were delish, and a definite keeper in this house. Thanks, thehealthyhousewife for sharing. Read More

Made a dzen and a half today for Memorial Day parties and they were a huge hit with the adults and kids too! I didn't have lime juice on hand so I used lemon a little more garlic than called for and left out the turkey bacon (I didn't have any either) added the pepper to the filling and also sprinkled on top. It had a great flavor not too heavy and with just enough kick to make it exciting. Thank you for sharing. Read More

What a nice twist to the deviled egg!!! I had to make a day ahead so I put the filling in a plastic bag, squeezed out the air and filled egg shells the next day. Read More

I didn't have mayo or bacon and they were still great! I used more avo in place of the mayo and then smoked paprika on top. Delicious! Read More

This recipe turned out great! The flavors are good together but I added a second squeeze of lime and a touch more cayenne to kick it up a notch. The only thing is that I made them a day before and they turned a really ugly green. The lime juice didn't help to preserve the color much. Read More

I normally don't leave my comments, but for this one i will. THIS IS A WINNER! I made these and a few others for Easter and yes all gone. i didn't change anything, but I did accidentally forget to add the jalapenos but with the hot sauce I didn't notice. Check out my pic. As you will notice they are colored eggs for Easter of course. I used the dying instructions also on this site. I have been asked to make these again along with the other 2 deviled eggs prepared from this site as well. Shrimp n Bacon Cheddar Deviled eggs. Read More
