Guacamole Deviled Eggs are a delicious snack combination of deviled eggs and guacamole! They’d also make a FANTASTIC appetizer dish for any gathering or holiday celebration. They require just a few simple ingredients, such as hard boiled eggs, mashed avocado, cilantro and lime juice.
Guacamole Deviled Eggs
My guys really love Deviled Eggs, and want them frequently. As with all recipes in our house, I try to keep a variety or multiple variations of their favorite recipes, to change things up every once in a while. Since they also regularly eat Hard Boiled Eggs for a snack, and guacamole for a snack, I decided one day to combine the two, and this is the result!
How to boil and easily peel the perfect hard boiled egg:
- Removed the desired quantity of eggs from the refrigerator.
- Gently place each egg into the bottom of a stock pot, then cover with water.
- Place stockpot onto your range, on high, to bring the water to a full, rolling boil.
- Once the water is boiling, turn the heat completely off.
- Let the eggs sit in the water for 15 minutes (set a timer!)
- Carefully drain the water into a colander.
- Run cold water over the eggs for a few minutes to cool them down.
- You can place them in an ice water bath, if desired.
- Once cooled, crack each egg by rolling it around on a hard surface (table or counter) to crack all around.
- I prefer to peel under a light stream of cold water (with the colander underneath to catch the shells!). This helps continue to cool the eggs, protect your hands, remove small bits of shell, and make it SO MUCH easier to peel all in one piece.
How to Choose the Best Avocados at the Grocery Store:
Buying avocados can be tricky. You don’t want them too hard, because they aren’t ripe yet and won’t taste right. If they’re too soft, they’ve gotten overripe, and also won’t taste right. They’re like Goldilocks, they need to be JUST RIGHT. I prefer to buy mine the day of or the day before I am using them, to make sure they’re what I want. You are looking for firm, gentle pressure, in the best avocados!
*I like to use the official California Avocados website as a reference, they’ve never failed me – not sponsored or endorsed, just my personal preference!
This can be tricky, because guacamole (avocados) can quickly turn brown. I often have hard boiled eggs already made and peeled in my fridge as snacks or breakfast for my kids. You can easily boil and peel the eggs ahead of time, which is honestly most of the work in making any variety of deviled eggs.
I prefer to make the filling part, the day of serving, to ensure the avocados for the guacamole are at their best. You can make them an hour or so before your guests arrive, just cover the serving tray completely with Saran Wrap and store in the refrigerator.
