Avocado-Lime Southwest Deviled Eggs June 04, 2014 12:46

This is another great egg recipe that we made for our egg class. Eggs are such a great source of protein and totally delicious! If you missed our post on cooking eggs in a pressure cooker you can find that here

As the weather starts heating up, this is a great recipe! 

Avocado Lime Mexican Deviled Eggs

You will need:

  • 12 whole eggs, hard boiled and shelled
  • 1/2 cup cilantro leaves
  • 2-3 green onions
  • 1/2 jalapeno pepper, cut into pieces
  • juice of 1/2 a lime
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 pinch paprika
  • Worcestershire sauce, to taste

Place the eggs in a pressure cooker on a trivet with 1 cup water. Bring water to ta boil. Place pressure lid on and bring to second ring (high pressure) cook 3-5 minutes. Let the pressure drop on its own and then run cold water in pan until cool. Slice eggs in half, remove yolks, and put  yolks in a Vitamix 750

Add the avocado to the yolks. Isn't it odd how much an avocado looks like a yolk-less egg? Green eggs and ham...Right?

Blend the yolks and avocado until smooth. Add remaining ingredients and blend until just combined. This makes it so there is still some pretty texture with the herbs and the eggs.

Place the yolk mixture in a pastry bag and squeeze into the empty eggs... 

Serve chilled.
