Avocado Deviled Eggs
There are a few foods in my life that I cannot stop eating once I start. Muddy buddies, no bake cookies, crepes and these avocado deviled eggs. I absolutely love them. They are so flavorful and, in my opinion, they are 10 times better than traditional deviled eggs. If you have leftover hard boiled eggs I highly recommend you make these!Print

Guacamole has garlic in it, but none in this recipe. Isn’t it kind of flat?
You can add garlic if you want. This recipe is my favorite it’s anything but flat with the tomatillos and cilantro.

Wouldn’t the lime juice act the same as lemon when it comes to keeping the freshness of the eggs?
I’m sure it would 🙂
Sorry! Worst deviled eggs ever! I had such high hopes. My son and daughter-in-law love Mexican food. I thought I would impress with these eggs. Nope. It was a flop for me.
I agree, made them tonight. They definitely lack something.

great idea for an appetizer. thank you!
You could probably use them for up to about 18 hours. Any longer than that and they'll start to get brown and look gross. Make sure to refrigerate with plastic wrap!
Must these be eaten right away, like guacamole, or can they be covered and taken to a party/picnic?

Do you put the avocado etc in with the yolks?
