Avocado Deviled Eggs Ingredients
  • Eggs: The foundation of the recipe, providing a perfect pocket for the creamy filling.
  • Avocados: Contribute a natural creaminess to the yolk mixture.

How to Make Avocado Deviled Eggs

Once you have all the ingredients ready, here’s what you’ll need to do to make avocado deviled eggs.

Step 1: Boil Eggs

Add eggs to a medium pot, and fill halfway with water. Boil over medium high heat for 10 minutes, then turn off the heat, and cover for 10 minutes.

Step 2: Prepare Mashed Avocado

While eggs are cooling, chop the cilantro, and cut avocados in half. Use a spoon to get the avocado out of the shell, and add to a mixing bowl. 

Step 3: Add Seasonings to the Mixture

Add the lime juice and smoked paprika to the bowl, and use a fork to mash it all together.

Step 4: Slice Hard Boiled Eggs, Mix Yolks into Avocado Mixture

After the eggs have set for 10 minutes, rinse eggs in ice and cold water (notes above), then peel. Slice eggs in half lengthwise, adding the cooked yolks to the avocado mixture. Mix together.

Step 5: Spoon Filling into Egg White Halves and Garnish

Use a piping bag or spoon to add the avocado mixture to the egg halves. Sprinkle with a pinch of paprika, and chopped cilantro. Chill until ready to serve.

Tips & Tricks to Nail the Avocado Deviled Eggs Recipe

While making these deviled eggs is super easy, you might want to take note of these little tips and tricks too.

  • If you don’t have the lime juice that the recipe calls for, you can use lemon juice instead.
  • To add flavor to the mixture with the avocado and egg yolks, you can add some garlic powder, cayenne pepper, bagel seasoning or just some salt and black pepper.
  • If you want the mixture to have a spicy kick, you can mix in some chili powder or hot sauce.
  • To get the perfect creamy texture for the filling, you can process the egg yolks and the avocado in a food processor.
  • I used finely chopped cilantro to garnish the eggs, but you can also try using chopped green onion or fresh chives.
  • Chopped red onion can also be a good addition to the filling for the avocado deviled eggs.
  • You can also mix some sour cream into the mixture to bring some extra flavor.

How to Serve Avocado Deviled Eggs

Your creamy avocado deviled eggs can be served on their own, or as a side dish in a nice serving platter.

If you want to prep the dish in advance, make sure you place eggs in an airtight container or in a bowl, covered with some plastic wrap, and the filling separately, all refrigerated.

This will also help keep the mixture from turning brown.
