Ingredients

  • 6 large eggs
  • 1/2 ripe avocado
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice or to taste!
  • zest from 1/2 lime
  • 1 tablespoon chopped cilantro
  • 2-3 tablespoons finely chopped red onion
  • salt and pepper
  • cayenne pepper to sprinkle
  • cooked crumbled bacon to garnish, optional

Instructions

  • Cook the eggs: add them to a medium pot, cover with water, bring to boil and cook for 9 minutes. Peel the eggs (what works for me for easy peeling: pour the boiling water into the sink and immediately cover the eggs with very cold water (from the tap), immediately crack the egg shells against the bottom of the pot (the eggs should be submerged under water while doing that), then peel them under the water).
  • Cut the eggs in half, scoop out the yolks using a teaspoon.
  • Mash the egg yolks and avocado with a fork. Combine with sour cream, lime juice, lime zest, chopped cilantro, and finely chopped red onion. Season well with salt and pepper.
  • Fill a thick plastic bag with the filling. Cut off one corner. Pipe the filling into egg white shells.
  • Crumble cooked bacon over the eggs. Sprinkle with cayenne pepper.
  • Serve right away. Enjoy!

Notes

  • If you'd like to make these vegetarian, you can omit the bacon, they are also great without it.
  • Instead of red onion, you can add finely chopped chives or green onions.
  • Instead of cayenne pepper, you can spice the filling with chopped jalapenos or hot sauce. You can also omit it, the eggs will be still very good.
  • Make sure the filling is seasoned well with salt (egg white shells will be unseasoned!) and lime juice. The acidity of lime juice may vary so add it to your taste.
  • These are best made just before serving because the avocado in the filling will turn just a little bit grey. What you can make ahead: you can cook and peel the eggs and prepare the filling without the avocado. You can add mashed avocado to the filling just before filling the egg shells and serving the eggs.
  • Calories = 1 deviled egg (1/12 of the recipe). This is only an estimate!
