AVOCADO DEVILED EGGS
Makes: 12 / Preparation time: 25 minutes / Total time: 25 minutes
6 hard-boiled eggs, peeled
1 ripe medium avocado
1 tablespoon lime or lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon salt or to taste
2-4 tablespoons reduced-fat mayonnaise
1 tablespoon chopped cilantro, plus a few leaves for garnish
1/2 jalapeño pepper, minced, optional
1 tablespoons chopped chives or green onion
Regular or smoked paprika for garnish
Cut the hard-boiled eggs in half. Remove the yolks and place them in a bowl. Place the whites on a serving platter.
Cut the avocado in half and remove the pit. Scoop out the avocado flesh and place in the bowl with the yolks. Roughly mash with a fork. Sprinkle with lime juice and salt. Stir in enough mayonnaise to make a barely smooth consistency. Stir in the chopped cilantro, jalapeño if desired and the chives. Taste and adjust seasoning.
Scoop a generous spoonful of the avocado mixture into the hollow center of each egg white. Top with a small sprig of fresh cilantro or some additional chopped chives.
