Avocado Deviled Eggs

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 12 minutes
Total Time 22 minutes
Servings 6 eggs

Ingredients

  • 6 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup mashed avocado
  • 2 1/2 tsp salsa
  • 1 tsp lime juice
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • dash of pepper
  • cilantro for garnish

Equipment

  • • Re-sealable plastic bag (like Ziploc)* or piping bag with a round tip

Instructions

  1. Fill a saucepan a little more than halfway with room temperature water, and place the pan over medium-high heat. Once the water reaches a rolling boil, add the eggs, lower to a simmer for 3 minutes then remove the pan from the heat. Let stand for 12 minutes (covered).

  2. Gently tap the eggs against the counter to crack the shell in several places, then immerse in a bowl with ice water for a few minutes. This will allow ease when peeling the eggs.

  3. Slice the eggs in half (length-wise). Gently remove the yolks either with your fingers or with a teaspoon. Place the yolks in a mixing bowl, and place the egg whites on a serving platter, sliced side up.

  4. Using a fork, mash the yolks until they are in small pieces. Add the avocado, salsa, and lime juice into the bowl and mix until smooth.

  5. Place the avocado filling in a plastic bag or pastry pipping bag. Pipe the filling into the egg whites so that it is slightly overflowing. To each egg, add salt, pepper, and cilantro. Serve immediately, or within 24 hours of preparation.

Recipe Notes

If using a plastic bag, push all the filling to one corner, press air out of the top, and snip one corner off with a pair of scissors. Extra deviled eggs can be refrigerated in an airtight container for a few days.
