Avocado Stuffed Eggs

"I found this recipe several years ago in our local newspaper. This is a different kind of deviled egg. The creamy avocado replaces the mayo. I have subbed lime juice for the lemon. The flavor is best when only slightly chilled or at room temp."

  1. Do NOT use 3 minute cooked eggs, hardboil as usual. Seriously!
  2. I love avocados and this was so good. I did agree with other reviewers about the bland flavor so I added some diced green chilies, diced fresh tomato and used the green olives. My oh my, this was good! I also sprinkled a tiny bit of grated pepper jack cheese on top as a garnish. YUM. I served these at our Family St. Patrick Day Brunch. They all loved them! Thanks for sharing this recipe!
  3. Very tasty! Even my husband, who doesn't like eggs much, loved these. I used dried minced onions, which gave the filling a nice crunch. I also added a little hot sauce, a little garlic, and a little ranch dressing for a creamy zing.
  4. If you like avocadoes, you have to try this recipe! I used lime juice in mine and garnished with Fiesta brand Pico De Gallo seasoning.
  5. Loved these deviled eggs, mainly because it doesn't have mayo in it! You don't even miss it. The filling is still creamy and flavorful!


  1. Instead of dicing the black olives, I topped each with a slice of olive and dusted each with a bit of paprika for color!
  2. This was a terrific recipe. I was trying to find a way to incorporate the avocado into my diet, but in a very simple way to take it to work with me. This was quick, simple, inexpensive and I can take it to work without breaking out forks, knives, etc... . I followed the recipe exactly, but I did sub sun dried tomatoes instead of olives. I will definitely make this again.
  3. Soooooo yummy! I subbed jalapeno juice for the lemon juice and it seemed to give it just the right zing! I served a dozen of these and a dozen regular deviled eggs and as soon as people tried these they were literaly gone in 2 minutes!!! (so make lots!!!)
