Deviled Guacamole Eggs

Deviled Guacamole Eggs

We took down our Christmas decorations yesterday. We threw ourselves another little dance party, it was a good way to cheer me up instead of being sad that Christmas is over. (This dance party was a little more classy: Pink Martini, no N’Sync.)

And then we looked around and realized how depressingly barren our house is. We have zero replacements for our Christmas decorations. Anyone have any awesome DIY ideas??

Deviled Guacamole Eggs

Have you guys tried deviled guacamole eggs? This was the first time I have made them, and I don’t know why, because they are amazing. I mean, deviled eggs plus guacamole? How could it get any better than that.

The recipe is from the brand new book Cooking with Coconut Oil by Elizabeth Nyland, who blogs over at Guilty Kitchen. It just came out Monday!

She makes amazing “paleo-ish” recipes, which are mostly gluten and grain free. She is a fabulous photographer and whips up some pretty amazing looking food, you should definitely stop by. Or buy her book! It’s only 13 bucks, and there are some really great ideas in it, especially if you eat paleo or have diet restrictions.

Elizabeth is a fellow member of the Culinary Content Network at the Daily Meal, so I thought I would give her a shout out. Want a sneak peak?

I made these Deviled Guacamole Eggs. Sooooo good! You really don’t miss the mayonnaise, the coconut oil and the avocado make it really rich and creamy. If you are still going with your diet 8 days into the new year, this is a great low-carb snack. (And props to you. I just polished off some leftover frozen Chocolate Chunk Gingerbread Cookies, so you are way ahead of me.)

Also, have you guys ever steamed eggs to hard-boil them? AMAZING. I don’t know why I’ve never heard of this before, I’ve seen people do everything from adding baking soda to the water, to baking them, to adding salt, but I’ve never heard of steaming them. The most perfectly cooked eggs I have ever had.

They were so moist; just barely cooked, and just the right shade of yellow. And they were ridiculously easy to peel! I had no casualties, not one. Usually I am the one trying not to tear my eyes out after I shred every last egg white to pieces. I will never cook hard-boiled eggs any other way, ever! There are some how-to shots below.

Do you guys give up? Or are you thirsty for more?

Deviled Guacamole Eggs

Yield: Makes 16 (halves)


  • 8 eggs
  • 1/2 large avocado
  • juice of 1/2 lime (about a tablespoon)
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil, room temperature
  • dash of hot sauce
  • 1/2 roma tomato or 3 cherry tomatoes, minced
  • 1 tablespoon cilantro, minced, plus more for garnish
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Fill a pot with a steamer attachment with about 3 inches of water. Bring water to a boil over high heat. Place the eggs in the steamer and set over the boiling water with a lid for 12 minutes. Immediately plunge eggs into ice water and cool completely. (You can boil them for 12 minutes directly in the water if you don't have a steamer.)
  2. Peel the cooled eggs and cut in half. Put the yolks into the bowl of a food processor, blender, or bowl. Add the avocado, lime juice, coconut oil, and hot sauce. Pulse until smooth, or mash with a fork.
  3. Stir in the tomatoes and cilantro, and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Spoon the filing into the whites and garnish with extra cilantro. Serve immediately. If you are serving them later, store them in the fridge but let come to room temperature for 30 minutes before serving.


These have avocado in them, so they will brown if you wait a while before serving. Cover them tightly.

Add your eggs to the steamer and cook for 12 minutes. So easy! Plus the eggs don’t bump around, so there’s no chance of cracking.

        Just had to let you know that I now ONLY steam my hard boiled eggs! You’ve basically changed my life. So much better than boiling them. They are so much easier to peel! I am always coming back to this post to double check how many minutes to let them cook, ha! Welp, off to steam some eggs now : )

    First, I don’t think you could call a “dance party” a “party” if you don’t have N’Sync. Maybe a “cotillion”.
    I do however think this recipe would get some attention at both.

  2. Misty says

    Steaming the eggs is a great idea! I’m so excited to try it! Its another one of those, why have I never thought of that, things.

  3. ConnieC says

    Is step #3 supposed to include the avocado and coconut oil? I didn’t see those added anywhere. And yes, the steamed eggs are new to me as well! Looking forward to trying this recipe.

    Ugh, I know – I miss my Christmas decorations, too. Although I did leave up this little Charlie Brown Christmas figurine set I have. I told my husband it’s more “winter themed,” so we should leave it up all of January :)

    I’ve been wanting to make guacamole deviled eggs for so long, and I don’t at all mind that you beat me to it. These are beautiful!

    These look Awesome! I’ve never made deviled eggs. My grandma always makes them for me around the holidays, but I’ve never made them myself. Maybe the first egg I try out should be these?! :)

    I just tried steaming my eggs to turn them hard-boiled and it was absolutely brilliant. They cooked faster, peeled easier, and my kids claimed they tasted better. (Then again, they say playing “Medal of Honor: WWII” edition makes them learn history better, so they might just be full of crap.)
    Thank you for once again improving my life. Now I’ve got to go tell the ladies in the backyard to increase their egg production so I can make this recipe for Saturday’s Colts game.
