Eggs Diablo

Eggs DiabloEggs Diablo is a healthier version of the classic Deviled Eggs with Greek yogurt and avocado replacing mayonnaise. If you are not a deviled egg fan, give this version a try. If you like guacamole, you will love Eggs Diablo! Green eggs. Perhaps Dr. Seuss was on to something!

INGREDIENTS:

  • One half-dozen organic hard-boiled eggs, peeled
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8th teaspoon cayenne or 1/4 teaspoon tabasco sauce
  • 1/4 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1 medium garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 cup cilantro leaves, plus a few tablespoons for garnish
  • 1 avocado, diced

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Using a sharp knife, slice each egg in half, lengthwise.
  2. Wipe knife clean after slicing each egg.
  3. Gently remove the yolk halves and place in a small mixing bowl.
  4. Arrange the egg white halves on a serving platter.
  5. Using a food processor or blender, combine yolks with all the remaining ingredients, except the avocado. Blend until well combined.
  6. Add the avocado and blend again until well combined and smooth.
  7. If needed, add extra lime juice to create a smooth texture.
  8. Adjust seasonings as needed.
  9. Spoon egg yolk mixture into the egg white halves.
  10. Garnish with chopped cilantro or cilantro leaves.

NOTES:

  • The filling can be processed¬†without a blender or food processor. Simply chop the cilantro and garlic well in advance.
  • Enjoy Eggs Diablo¬†the day you prepared them. After a day in the refrigerator, they will be Army green. Patriotic? Perhaps. Appealing? Not so much.
  • Fresh eggs are much harder to peel when hard-boiled. Try using eggs up to one week old.
