These guacamole deviled eggs are full of heart-healthy fat and creamy Southwest flavor.
I’m of the belief that if there is an option to add avocado to something, that option should always be taken.
So when I was thinking of a tasty twist on one of my favorite egg dishes for Easter, naturally, adding avocado was top of mind.
Deviled eggs were a favorite food of mine growing up. I was always so eggcited (sorry, one and only Easter pun I promise) when my mom made them for a special occasion, and would usually pop about ten before complaining of a stomachache.
I’m older now though – arguably wiser – and have a little more self-control around these scrumptious bites. So this year, I thought I’d whip up a recipe with a slightly more mature flavor.
These guacamole deviled eggs combine the creamy goodness of this classic dish with the tangy taste of the Southwest.
Using five simple ingredients including fresh avocados and tomatoes, these eggs are a healthy snack full of anti-inflammatory monounsaturated fat and phytochemicals.
They make an impressive Easter appetizer or a unique snack for kids.
