Easy Avocado Deviled Eggs Recipe

  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • 6 hard boiled large eggs, peeled and halved
  • 1 ripe avocado, peeled and seeded
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice (lemon juice may be substituted)
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard (I used Grey Poupon)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, or to taste
  • pinch cayenne pepper or chili powder, optional and to taste
  • 2 tablespoons finely minced fresh cilantro or to taste
  • paprika or smoked paprika, optional for garnishing (cayenne pepper or chili powder may be substituted for a spicy kick)


Make a batch of hard-boiled eggs, peel, and halve them lengthwise. Scoop out the yolks into a large bowl and set whites aside on a platter.
To the bowl with the yolks, add the avocado, lime juice, mayo, mustard, salt, pepper, optional cayenne pepper, and mash with a fork to combine.
Stir in the cilantro. Taste filling and make any necessary seasoning tweaks, i.e. more salt, spice, etc.
Dollop the filling into the whites with a small spoon.
Optionally garnish with (smoked) paprika, chili powder, or cayenne. Serving immediately is best; alternatively place in an airtight container and refrigerate for up to 8 hours before serving, noting the avocado will oxidize as time passes and the color of the filling will turn duller.
