A fun twist on the classic deviled eggs recipe.
Can you believe there was a time when I didn’t love avocado?
What a bleak time in my life.
It was during the same time where I would’ve told you my lime green vest was my most prized possession, and also during the time I was under the impression one could never have too many sparkly butterfly clips.
It was during this same time that I at least would profess my love of guacamole (it really is one of the best chip dips around), so I wasn’t all that deprived.
If only little Michelle could’ve met future Michelle, because at the present moment, I live for avocado. Somewhere along the way, I grew to love avocado as much as I love guacamole, and let me tell you, life is complete.
Of course, while I will (and did above) profess my love of guacamole as the best chip dip recipe, I love guacamole on pretty much anything.
Hamburgers? Oh yeah.
Tacos? It wouldn’t be Taco Tuesday without it.
Deviled Eggs? 100 thousand times yes.
Guacamole Deviled Eggs are ridiculously delicious and incredibly easy to make. As much as I do love a classic deviled eggs recipe, I am about ready to declare these Guacamole Deviled Eggs as the best deviled egg recipe of all time.
All right, so this Guacamole Deviled Egg recipe comes straight from the American Heart Association.
Eggland’s Best and the American Heart Association is teaming up to create awareness about how spending time together and eating healthy, nutritious meals go hand in hand.
September is National Family Meals Month™ and The American Heart Association’s Healthy for Good™ movement, along with Eggland’s Best, are asking families all across America to participate in the Family Meals Pledge by committing to spend an additional “dozen” minutes around the table while enjoying a healthy, nutritious meal together.
What I love about these Guacamole Deviled Eggs is that they are both heart-healthy and easy to make. Plus, this is a kid-friendly recipe that you and your family can make together!
Guacamole Deviled Eggs Tips & Tricks
- These Guacamole Deviled Eggs begin with Eggland’s Best Eggs, which is not only the #1 branded egg in the U.S., they also have 6 times more vitamin D and more than double Omega-3s than ordinary eggs. They are an excellent source of vitamin B12, E, B5, and riboflavin, as well as having 25% less saturated fat than other eggs.
- This recipe uses only a couple deviled egg yolks and mostly avocado. The egg yolks add a richness to the guacamole without overpowering the guacamole.
- The lemon juice not only adds a brightness to the recipe, the acidity also helps to keep the avocado from oxidizing and turning brown.

Who’s ready to get crackin’???
- 9 large Eggland’s Best Eggs
- 1 medium avocado, halved and pitted
- 2 Tbsp fat-free sour cream
- 1 1/2 tsp lime juice
- 1/3 cup seeded and finely chopped Roma tomatoes, about 1-2 tomatoes (they are seeded otherwise the guacamole will get too runny)
- 1/4 cup scallions, finely chopped
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/8 tsp ground black pepper
- 1 to 2 tsp finely chopped jalapeno, if too spicy, this can be omitted
- cilantro, for garnishing
Fill a large pot with water and add the eggs. Bring to a boil over high heat. Once the water begins to boil, cover with a lid, remove the pot from the heat, and allow the eggs to sit for about 10 minutes. Remove the eggs from the hot water (I use a slotted spoon) and place into a bowl of cold ice water (this helps stop the cooking process as well as helps the eggs peel easier).
Once the eggs have cooled, peel and halve all 9 of them. Remove all yolks.
Place 2 whole yolks into a medium bowl (discard the rest of the yolks or you can save them for another recipe) and place the egg white halves onto a serving dish.
Add the avocado to the egg yolks, and mash the mixture together. Add in the sour cream and lime juice, mixing until combined.
Mix in the tomato, the scallions, salt, pepper, and jalapeno (if using) to the guacamole, mixing until combined.
Spoon the guacamole into each egg half, dividing the filling between all 18 egg halves.
If desired, garnish with cilantro.
Serve immediately, or refrigerate until ready to serve.
(While you can make the hard boiled eggs ahead of time, I would suggest making the filling and filling the eggs relatively close to the time you plan on serving the guacamole deviled eggs).
