St. Patrick’s Day is coming up and Green is the color of choice (or if you are anti-green, then it’s orange but that’s a different story). Deviled eggs are great for any gathering and with the help of Wholly Guacamole, my Deviled Green Guac Eggs are a fast way to put together an appetizer for your St. Paddy’s Day gathering.
I put my own ingredients together along with a sample of Wholly Guacamole that I received and when my son saw what I was mixing up, he was intrigued and delighted. He said that it had to be healthier than mayo, and I had to agree. My husband had a taste when he came home from work and he was equally delighted. We all agree that this makes a fantastic bite.
You can find Wholly Guacamole in the refrigerated produce section of the store. If you have more time, you can make up your own guacamole using avocados, garlic powder, and lemon or lime to keep from turning brown. If you wish for a little more heat use the Spicy Guac or add some hot peppers.
Green pea shoots make a great 3 leaf cloverish like green to sprinkle around the eggs and give it a little Irish flair on your serving plate.
Deviled Green Guac Eggs – a good St. Patrick’s Day appetizer and also a little healthier than the mayo recipe. I add onion and chipotle pepper seasoning to give it a little smoky spicy kick.
- 6 hard-boiled eggs
- 1 package of Wholly Guacamole Classic
- 1 Green onion minced
- ¼ tsp Smoked Chipotle Pepper seasoning
- Peel egg and slice in half lengthwise.
- Remove yolks into a bowl, set aside whites onto a plate.
- Smash yolks until they are finely ground.
- Add in minced onion, smoked chipotle seasoning, and green onion.
- Mix well.
- Place mixture into a piping bag or a ziplock bag with the corner cut off and pipe into the white portion of the egg, or use a spoon and spoon it into the white.
- Sprinkle pea shoots around for garnish – and sprinkle with more chipotle pepper seasoning (optional).
Notes: If you would like a little spicier, add in chopped hot pepper, or use the spicy version of the Guacamole Dip.
