Mexican Deviled Eggs

Ingredients

6 large eggs
1/2 ripe avocado, chopped
3 tbs mayonnaise
2 tbs fresh lime juice
1 jalapeno pepper, minced
1 scallion, minced
2 tbs cilantro, finely chopped
kosher salt and black pepper to taste
1 tsp cayenne pepper
paprika and lemon slices for garnish
These deviled eggs are flavored with lime juice, jalapenos and cilantro.
  • Add the eggs to a sauce pan filled with cold water and bring to a boil.
  • As soon as water boils, turn off the heat and cover. Let stand for 15 minutes.
  • Pour off the hot water and run cold water over the eggs until cooled.
  • To remove the shells place several eggs at a time in a saucepan, cover and shake back and forth for about 30 seconds. You will find that the shells come off very easily.
  • Slice the eggs in half and gently remove the yolks and place in a bowl along with all of the other ingredients and mix well to combine.
  • Using a pastry bag or teaspoon place an even amount of the yolk mixture in each egg half.
  • Garnish each egg half with paprika.
  • Serve on a platter with lemon slices and salad greens if desired.
