Southern Living April 2007. This is on the menu for the next night we have Mexican food. I'm posting the recipe as written, but I will probably cut the recipe down for us. The cook time I listed is the time to chill the eggs before serving.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Slice eggs in half and remove yolks.
  2. Mash the eggs and avocado together.
  3. Add in the onions, pickle juice, mayonnaise and dressing mix; stir until blended.
  4. Spoon this mixture into the egg halves.
  5. Sprinkli with chili powder.
  6. Cover and chill at least 1 hour.
  7. Garnish with a dollop of salsa before serving.

What a great deviled egg recipe - I think these are my new favorite. Loved the addition of the ranch dressing mix with the avocado and egg. I am taking this dish to a potluck tonight and I know there will be no leftovers. I plan to serve the salsa on the side so people can have a choice of eating them as they are or adding the dollop of salsa on top. Made for ZWT-8-Mexico/US SW.

This recipe is excellent ~ I too also found it in Southern Living. I will be making these time and time again.

We really enjoyed these. I really liked the flavor the pickle juice gave this. I found it tasted better without the salsa. But that's a personal preference. I will make these again thanks.
