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.
