I got this great alternative to deviled eggs from my brother Mark. I've taken this recipe to the office and family gatherings and they ask for me to bring to every occasion.

I think you need to be a real avocado lover for this one. While the taste was okay everyone tried it...I think I'll stick to regular ole deviled eggs. I was looking for ways to incorporate avocados into our diet they are a natural source of Omega-3 (EFA)...and "good" fat. If you like avocados I believe you'll enjoy these - I guess it just wasn't our taste. and hey check out the avocado pie on this site - outta this world good!!!!! Read More

This is a very good alternative to regular deviled eggs BUT the guacamole turned very dark when I put it in the eggs the night before I was going to serve them so next time I will wait until the last minute to add it to the eggs. Very tasty though. Read More

These were great. My family LOVES avocados so I followed the recipe as is. Once my mom tasted one she just kept stuffing them into her mouth and told everyone else that they didn't taste good. This is a great recipe if you want a change from a basic deviled egg. Read More

It was very good however it's mostly like guacamole in eggs. If you like that you'll like these. I garnished with a dab of sourcream and an olive slice. They were pretty that way. Read More

While these were good they need a few changes to be delicious. Next time I prepare these I'll add some finely minced garlic and extra jalapeno and cilantro. Read More

Made 9 eggs-worth of these along with 9 eggs-worth of bacon and cheese deviled eggs for a "do" here in the canyon tonight. They were the hit if the party! Everybody loved them. Add the lime juice to the avocado as you are mashing it and before adding the other stuff and you should have no problem with browning. I topped them off with a little sprinkle of Pico de Gallo. I used 9 eggs and double the recipe for the guacamole and even though I really loaded each egg half with the goop there was plenty left over for some tortilla chip dipping tomorrow. Thanks Lisa Linthicum for a great recipe! Read More

I thought this was great and unusual. However my wedding was on July 4th and they do turn brown. If anybody comes up with any ideas to keep this from happening let us know. Read More

This variation was pretty good tasting but it makes too much filling for so few eggs. If you like your eggs saltier or hot-tasting you will need to increase those ingredients. I tripled the recipe but only used 5 avocados and it was still too much filling. Thanks. Read More
