5 Irish Recipes, #1
Get in touch with your Irish side when you make guacamole deviled eggs for St. Patrick’s Day. Everyone in my family is a mega fan of deviled eggs. We have these yummy eggs at almost every holiday dinner or family gathering.
For St. Patrick’s Day, I wanted to try a little something different. I came across a wonderful recipe for guacamole deviled eggs and knew I just had to try them. Plus, they are green! These eggs are very easy to make and really aren’t much different than traditional deviled eggs.
When I served these yummy guacamole deviled eggs my daughter asked me if I put green food coloring in them haha!
6 hard-boiled eggs
2 ripe avocados
1 Tbsp lime (or lemon) juice
1/2 teaspoon Morton salt
1 Tbsp Daisy sour cream
1 Tbsp chopped cilantro (plus several leaves for garnish)
1 serrano or 1/2 jalapeno chile pepper, minced
1 Tbsp chopped chives or green onion
1 Carefully peel the hard boiled eggs and cut them in half lengthwise. Place them on a serving platter. Scoop out the cooked yolks and set aside.
2 Cut the avocados in half. Remove the pit. Scoop out the avocado flesh and place in a bowl. Roughly mash with a fork. Use your fingers to break up one or two of the cooked egg yolks (2 to 4 halves) over the mashed avocado. (Reserve the remaining egg yolks for another use.) Sprinkle with lime juice and salt, and stir in the sour cream. Stir in the chopped cilantro, serrano or jalapeño chile pepper, and chives.
3 Scoop a generous spoonful of the avocado mixture into each well of the hard boiled egg whites. Top with a small sprig of fresh cilantro or some chopped chives.
