These guacamole deviled eggs are a unique twist on classic deviled eggs that my brother-in-law introduced us to when we visited them in Texas at Christmas. I did not grow up eating guacamole or avocados so I asked my brother-in-law to teach me how to make homemade guacamole and he went the extra mile and showed us how to make these delicious and eays guacamole deviled eggs!
I guess Texas is the birthplace of the “put avocado in everything trend” that has been sweeping the country. Avocado on subs, avocado in brownies, avocado in smoothies, avocado everywhere!
And why not! Avocados are awesome! Avocados are loaded with healthy goodness like:
- Potassium! Have you ever heard the trick to ease muscle cramps by eating a banana? Well, actually an avocado has more potassium than a banana and potassium also helps lower blood pressure.
- High in healthy fats which is awesome for heart health and lowering cholesteral!
- High in fiber which aids digestion.
- High in Vitamin K which helps proper blood function in your body.
- The high fat volume means it helps you stay full longer and feel more satisfied.
Combining the superfood avocado with nature’s most complete food the egg basically means you are getting a super-duper superfood with these guacamole deviled eggs. You can make the hard boiled eggs and guacomole yourself using your favorite recipe or buy them pre-made to whip up this recipe in a flash!
