Ingredients and Variations

Simple ingredients and endless filling options will make this a new recipe every time!

Eggs – Week-old eggs are best for the hard-boiled egg base because they peel the easiest! Make hard-boiled eggs on the stovetop, in the Instant Pot, or the Air Fryer. Be sure they are cool and ready to peel.

Avocados – Fresh, or frozen and thawed, avocados work. If using fresh, choose heavy, unblemished avocados that give just a bit when you squeeze them.

Filling – Greek yogurt can be switched out for the sour cream, if desired. Don’t forget the lemon juice as it keeps the filling from oxidizing (turning brown). In a pinch for time? Prepared guacamole can be used instead of an avocado, and it comes pre-seasoned which is a bonus!

Variations – Add chopped bell peppers, bacon bits, or a splash of Sriracha! For a Tex-Mex inspired night, mix in some southwest seasoning, and top with chopped cilantro and a slice of jalapeno! Or swirl in some homemade ranch dressing and top with bacon bits to make bacon ranch avocado deviled eggs.

How to Make Avocado Deviled Eggs

Avocado Deviled Eggs combine our favorite side dish with the creamy goodness of avocados!

  1. Peel and mash avocado in a medium bowl.
  2. Peel cooled eggs and slice them in half. Add the yolks to the avocado.
  3. Mix in sour cream, lemon juice, and seasonings with a fork until smooth, as per the recipe below.
  4. Rinse the egg whites and pat them dry. Pipe or spoon avocado filling into each egg half and garnish with parsley or paprika, if desired.

A Cool Idea!

Serve avocado deviled eggs on a plate or tray under another tray filled with crushed ice if they will be on a table for more than an hour.

Storing Avocado Deviled Eggs

  • Make avocado deviled eggs up to a few hours ahead of time. Or assemble all the ingredients ahead of time, adding the mashed avocado just before filling the egg halves, before serving.
  • Keep leftover avocado deviled eggs covered in the refrigerator for up to two days, any longer and the avocado may oxidize which will affect the flavor.
  • Chop up leftovers and serve them on crostini, or scoop them into a wrap or pita pocket for a healthy portable lunch!
