Guacamole Deviled Eggs


Healthy Deviled Eggs

If you're looking for a healthy snack of appetizer for St Patrick's Day, these green deviled eggs are the perfect solution.

My mom adds hard boiled eggs to her guacamole, so I thought why not add guacamole to hard boiled eggs? The results were lovely, and since I was testing them out for the blog, I actually enjoyed them for lunch.

These are a fun, "clean" snack or appetizer, not just as a green food for St Patrick's day, but for anytime of the year. Loaded with a good dose of healthy fats and perfect for any dietary restriction – vegetarian, gluten-free, weight watchers, low-carb, paleo, and more!

  1. You just gave me a great idea! :)

    I'm not a guac girl but the color is too pretty to not use in some form and the Mr LOVES deviled eggs!

  2. I love this idea and can't wait to try it out. Do you have issues with the avocado turning brown? Meaning, if I make it the night before and put it in the fridge, will they be brown the next day?

    1. Add lemon juice. Keeps from browning for a couple days.

    2. Keep the pit/seed submerged in the guac up until its time to serve. My Mexican friends taught me that trick to keep it from discoloring.

    4. There's lime juice in the recipe so that should keep it from turning brown.

    5. The lime juice will keep that from happening.

  4. I am diggin' every part of this. I love deviled eggs and guacamole almost equally (deviled eggs may have a slight edge), and this looks like the perfect way to marry the two.

    1. Instead of tossing the other four yolks, make more of the avocado mix and make wraps.

  13. I am so excited about this idea! Its a marriage of two things I LOVE! Also, I tried your Crock Pot Sesame Honey Chicken last night and it was a home run! My husband and toddler son loved it and I'm about to wrap some up in lettuce for lunch today. Keep the crock pot meals coming!

  17. Definitely on the menu for Sunday along with Corned Beef & Cabbage!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Hmm... I might actually eat deviled eggs if I made them like this!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Wow, these look great! And such a festive idea for St. Patrick's day

    ReplyDelete
  20. GREAT idea! Just a helpful hint. Whenever I make deviled eggs, I find it handy to use a disposable sandwich baggie. Just fill it with the gooey ingredients/filling for the hard boiled egg halves, and close the top. (I prefer the zipable closure kind) Then clip off the corner of one end at bottom of baggie. Simply squeeze the ingredients into the egg "cup" and you have a simple, clean way to fill the eggs! You can control the amount in each egg and even add a creative twist to the top when you really get the hang of things! HA!

    I can't wait to give this a try! Thanks!!! I just LOVE your ideas!

      It's not simple if you have cerebral palsy. What I did is bought a cookie press. Works pretty well.

  21. I had to give up deviled eggs, as they are a trigger food for me. However, I think that at 1point+ a piece, and being filled with yummy (not triggery) guac, these may be the option I've been looking for!

    Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I have often made egg salad with avocado in place of the mayo, adding the additional flavor of the Guac is something I know I would love. Thanks for the recipe!

  23. Making these for my passover seder dinner. Can't wait

  27. I love guacamole AND I love deviled eggs; why oh why did I not think of this myself?! Cannot wait to make.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Beautiful! And, I LOVE that you gave the nutritional values and WW points too!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I assume these are super guacy given you use only 2 of the yolks. What about using half of them (3)? Besides not being a huge guac fan, I feel bad wasting.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Sure, you can, but it increases the points to 2 each.

  35. I pinned this recipe last night, and had a co-worker make it today during work (ha!). They are AMAZING. 44 calories a pop? That's too good!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Great idea! I will be making these. But, who adds mayo to deviled eggs? Bad idea and I love mayonnaise. ALWAYS only my favorite mustard with the required paprika on top!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Wow.. Great Idea.. I am definitely going to give it a try

    ReplyDelete
  38. Wow, I wish I'd seen this a week ago- I just threw my daughter a Dr. Seuss party and just added green food coloring to deviled eggs to make the green eggs and ham thing, but this would have been so much more delicious! And, since I just can't get past the taste/texture of the yolks (especially when mayo is added- yuck), this might be the perfect solution for me. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Ummm is this heaven? My two favorite foods combined! can't wait to try this out!

    ReplyDelete
  40. These were wonderful. We took them to a St. Patrick's day party this weekend and won an award for best side dish. We'll be making them again!

    ReplyDelete
  41. These looks and sounds AMAZING!!! Pinned ;) Thanks so much for sharing!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  42. What do you do with the other four egg yolks?

    ReplyDelete
  43. Instead of "discarding" the other 4 yolks, dice them and put them in your bird feeder. Many birds LOVE cooked yolks, and birds that normally won't come to your feeder for seed (insect eaters) WILL come for yolk...

    ReplyDelete
  44. These look amazing!! Must try them!

  45. Featured these on my blog today! Thanks for the great recipe!

  48. What a great idea! I love guacamole but the idea of eating a ton of chips to consume it is not so appealing.....problem solved!

    ReplyDelete
  49. I tried this just now, WOW! Absolutely amazing, my boyfriend and I loved it!!! Thanks for sharing this recipe. So easy to do and yummy!

  50. What a great new take on deviled eggs!

    ReplyDelete
  51. I am the Deviled Egg maker in my family.
    My sisters & one brother are from Guatemala & the youngest sis is graduating from college this Sat. The party is gonna be on Cinco Dé Mayo. So yay I get to try these out, I can't wait!! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  52. Thank you sooo much for that "GREAT" recipe!
    Sounds delicious. Will try it tomorrow!

    ReplyDelete
  53. I'm anxious to try this. I love deviled eggs but have never been able to eat egg salad. (I think it is the amount of Mayo in it that turns me off.) I might make the deviled eggs with guests coming then save those extra yolks and make some guaca/egg salad the next day on whole grain bread!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Now that I think about it I might just boil a couple of eggs, use the yolks as directed and add the chopped egg white to the mix.

    ReplyDelete
  55. I love eggs like this but I like your chili powder addition. Nice touch!

    ReplyDelete
  56. I just tried it it's waaaaaaaaaaw , I added some olive oil.
    thank you for the receipe :)

    ReplyDelete
  57. Great recipe - But I don't think the additional egg yolks need be "discarded" but "re-purposed" if there is no need in this recipe. Food is a precious commodity :)

    ReplyDelete
  58. Has anyone made these the night before and brought them to a potluck? I'm wondering if the guac mix will brown?

    ReplyDelete
  59. I'm serving these with a small boiled shrimp on top of each one....perfect appetizers for my party!!

    ReplyDelete
  60. These look amazingly delicious. I have had deviled eggs but never with avocado. What a great healthy combination. I am having a party and trying to add some healthy foods and this is a great option.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Can I you lemon instead of lime juice

    ReplyDelete
  62. I think that this combination is Divine!! Thanks I will make this for a Potluck!

    ReplyDelete
  63. Looks great, but what would the ingredient-ratios be when using prepared guacamole (when avocados are out of season)? 2 or 4TB of guac along with the cooked egg yokes? Just curious.
