Ok, so here’s my dirty little secret – I’ve never actually made deviled eggs before this recipe. I really really love them, but for some reason thought they were a lot harder to make than they are. There’s that, and also the fact that I was terrible at making hard boiled eggs. (Yes, I know. I started a food blog and couldn’t boil an egg. We all have our vices…). But hold the tisk tisk-ing, because I overcame both and made some super easy and delicious deviled eggs. Look ma! I finally made my own deviled eggs!
- 6 hard boiled eggs
- 1/2 of an avocado (I used the other half of the avocado from our BLT(EA) recipe)
- 1 tsp of finely chopped cilantro
- 1 tbsp of finely chopped red onion
- 1 tbsp of lime juice
- A pinch of salt and pepper
- A pinch of paprika per egg
Take the yolks from the hard boiled eggs and combine with all of the ingredients except paprika. Be sure to blend it until creamy. Scoop spoonfuls back in to the eggs and dash on the paprika.
If you want something a little more spicy, try blending in some chili pepper or finely chopped jalapeno. Can’t wait to make these again for margarita night!
Feliz Comiendo, XO
