Here’s a bit of a twist on classic deviled eggs. I’ve made them a bit more modern (and quite delicious) by creating avocado deviled eggs with a spicy kick.
This recipe accommodates a lot of different diets. It’s Paleo-friendly and is both gluten-free and dairy-free. Best of all, these deviled eggs are so yummy! Beware, they are addicting 🙂
Avocado deviled eggs are a perfect party starter. Be forewarned, they are a bit on the spicy side. If you prefer to tone down the heat, try using a bit less crushed red pepper. On the other hand, if you like it with a big kick, use more red pepper.
My favorite part of these deviled eggs is the avocado mayo. I use Chosen Foods Traditional Mayo. It tastes just like regular mayonnaise! Although it is dairy-free, it certainly doesn’t scrimp on taste. You’ll never notice the difference.
Spiced Avocado Deviled Eggs
I have recently found a new way to “hard boil” my eggs – in the air fryer! I know, you’re thinking I am crazy, but trust me on this one….it’s too easy! I didn’t include the cooking method in the recipe down below, simply because not everyone has an air fryer yet (not sure what you are waiting for, I absolutely love mine! You can find it here). If you’d like to try it, here’s my new favorite method:
Hard boil eggs in the air fryer:
- Place 8 eggs on the air fryer tray or in the basket
- Set temperature to 275, for 17 minutes
- When timer goes off, place eggs in ice bath for one minute
Another fabulous recipe that uses this air fryer method of hard-boiling eggs is this spicy egg salad—give it a try!
If you’ll be boiling the eggs the traditional way, add a few drops of the white wine vinegar to the water and it will make it much easier to peel the eggs.
These amazing deviled eggs made with avocado have a spicy kick to them. They are a great alternative to regular deviled eggs for those needing a gluten-free or Paleo option.
