Creamy Avocado Deviled Eggs Recipe
It’s no secret that deviled eggs are a crowd-pleaser. Any time I bring them to a potluck, they seem to fly off the table! I always see people going back for seconds or thirds, and I don’t blame them! How can you resist when they’re bite-sized pieces of creamy goodness? I decided to test out making them with avocado for a boost of flavor and creaminess. It was the perfect addition to egg salad, so I thought, why not add it to deviled eggs? The result was mind-blowing. For all of my fellow avocado lovers out there, I’m here to present to you: the ultimate deviled eggs recipe.
If you love guacamole, you’re going to love these. It’s essentially the same thing since avocado is blended with egg yolks to make the filling. I like to season mine with lime and garlic so each bite is filled with a dollop of zesty, savory flavor. Avocado deviled eggs really are a game-changer. If you’ve found the flavor of traditional deviled eggs to be too ‘eggy’ for you, give these a try! They’re so fresh and creamy! Make them for your next get-together and I assure you, they’ll be a hit.
Everything You’ll Need to Make Them

- Avocados: I used medium-sized avocados here. See tips on picking the best avocado below!
- Garlic Powder: Adds the perfect savory flavor!
- Lime Juice: I love adding lime juice for a pop of citrusy flavor. It also helps the avocado and egg yolks to blend together. You can add more to taste!
- Kosher Salt: Kosher salt isn’t iodized, so it doesn’t have a bitter aftertaste. It will add a better flavor to anything you cook!
- Pepper: Helps to enhance the overall dish.

Made them today, great recipe! Might try some chili powder/Taco seasoning instead of paprika for a Taco Tuesday kinda of taste. Definitely a keeper~ Thank You
I love that idea! Let me know how they turn out!
How do I boil eggs so the shell doesn’t tear and remove the white?
Shocking the eggs in the ice water should help the peel come off easily!
This always works for me: fill pot with water, add eggs at room temp. Put on stove til water and eggs come to a boil. As soon as you see it boil, take the pot off burner and cover for 10 min. After 10 min, drain and put in ice bath for 3-5 min.
They way I peel them: I lightly tap the fat end of the egg on the counter till it cracks and then I roll it around on its “butt” making wider circles til the shell has lots of little cracks in it. It allows the air to creep up around inside the membrane and separates from the outer shell. I then just roll it all around until the whole shell is shattered. By that time, the shell is literally sloughing off and the white portion is intact. Hope this helps!!!
Sounds great, I can’t wait to make this! I assume the lime juice goes into the food processor with the other filling ingredients?
great and a nice way to skip the mayo and still have a creamy texture, nice idea, thank you!
