Guacamole Deviled Eggs are a huge hit in our house. The boys (now teenagers if you can believe it!) and their friends love this healthy after school snack. I love that it’s high protein and full of healthy fat.
If you’re looking for healthy St. Patrick’s day recipes, I’ve got you covered with this one! Craving more green-themed recipes? Take a look at my Green Eggs recipe – it’s a super healthy bright green method for making scrambled eggs.
Guacamole Deviled Eggs
- 6 large hard boiled eggs, cooled and peeled
- 2 ripe avocados
- ¼ cup cilantro, finely chopped
- 1 tablespoon chives, finely chopped
- 1 tablespoon lime juice
- ½ teaspoon celtic sea salt
- 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- chili powder, for garnish
- Cut eggs in half and remove yolks
- In a medium bowl, mash yolks and avocados
- Stir in cilantro, chives, lime juice, salt, and red pepper flakes
- Scoop filling into egg whites with a 1 tablespoon ice cream scoop
- Refrigerate until serving
- Sprinkle with chili powder
This recipe is based on Elise’s Guacamole Deviled Eggs recipe on Simply Recipes. In my version, I’ve omitted the sour cream, increased the amount of cilantro (who can resist an extra helping of this phytonutrient rich herb that controls blood sugar?!), and used different spices –ones that I keep on hand in my spice drawer. What makes this deviled egg recipe special is that it does not require mayonnaise. The avocados are rich enough to replace it, and add the gorgeous green hue.
I’m not sure what it is about deviled eggs that makes them such a special, festive treat. Maybe it’s that they look so pretty and taste absolutely rich and delicious. If you’re looking for another quick and easy kid friendly snack, try my basic Deviled Egg recipe which is flavored with mayonnaise, mustard, celery, shallots, and parsley!
I can’t wait to give this a try! Thanks!!! I just LOVE your ideas!
You’re welcome Adrian!

So good! I used one large avocado and it was the perfect amount!
Elizabeth, so glad you enjoyed these!
I made the guacamole deviled eggs this evening what a big hit the fresh lime juice made these eggs very refreshing. They are delishious thank you for a great recipe. I just discovered your site through another post happy I found you great recipes thanks again!
Marilyn, so glad you liked them!
Love this recipe. Thinking about making them for an upcoming potluck but I am busy the night before. How long ahead of time could they be made and stored? Two days?
Hi Steve, each time I’ve made these I’ve done so the same day I’m serving them since I’m concerned that the avocado could go brown if prepared more than a few hours in advance. If you do decide to make them a day or two ahead of time please let us know if it works out well.
Just another idea: I make huge batches of guacamole and freeze them into 1 cup containers. Thaws out wonderfully! Thinking it’d work great with the added egg also.
Wow~ This recipe is fantastic. Look like the lunch time is coming and you make me feel so hungry. I definitely will make it for dinner.
YUM! These are just delish and will be on my snack menu all the time!!
The great thing is being able to mix and match flavors with such a great fruit as avocado!!!
Elana’s pantry is helping me to eat right and enjoy cooking again!!!

I made these for my lady friends who came to visit. They loved them, I did too and my super picky husband as well! The only change I made was to add more lime juice. Thanks Elena for this fabulous recipe. I definitely will be making these again.?

I would add some homemade bacon bits on top! These look great!
Actually, there are a lot of choices to fill with deviled eggs. I would like to add some celery for my favorite taste. Anyway, I would like to share mine with quick preparation and easy to find ingredients:
– 3 large eggs
– 2 slices of bacon
– 1 tablespoon of mayonnaise
– 1/2 to 1 teaspoon yellow mustard
– Pepper and salt
– 1/4 teaspoon of paprika or chili powder
– some fresh onion
With mine, the filled portion consists of yolk and bacon. Way to cook is identical. Hope it’s helpful.
Next time! Thanks!

Egg is my favorite but all the time come up with simple boiling and omelet. I already made the nearly similar recipe but I mixed the yolks with Chinese squash rather than avocado. It did taste good, even better if your squash is well selected. Perhaps add to my recipe library under egg recipe category for a try next time.
