I can't eat enough of these spicy savory deviled eggs. These eggs are made with avocado, slightly spicy from the jalapeno, and have added flavor from the addition of ingredients that pair with avocado. Oh, and you can't forget the bacon! These eggs are so good and so easy to make. Due to their green color, they are the perfect holiday appetizer for Christmas and the holiday season!

Christmas Deviled Eggs Recipe

Green eggs? Yes, please!

Do you like green eggs! I sure do especially these avocado deviled eggs. I made these eggs specifically for Christmas time since their green color fits perfectly with a spread on any holiday table. For this deviled egg recipe, I swapped out the mayonnaise with avocado which turns the eggs green (NO green food coloring or food dye needed!). I also added in flavors that pair nicely with the avocado. The jalapeno adds in a little heat and, of course, the bacon is oh so good with it all!

These deviled eggs are the perfect appetizer for any time of year, but especially great for Christmas parties and holiday get-togethers.

Avocado Deviled Egg Ingredients

✽ Eggs: Of course, you'll need some hard-boiled eggs to make deviled eggs. I used large eggs for this recipe.

✽ Avocado: Traditionally, deviled eggs are made creamy and rich with the addition of mayonnaise. These deviled eggs, however, have avocado added in place of the mayonnaise. The avocado adds in the needed fat and creaminess to make these eggs delicious. The avocado also turns the filling green making these eggs have a nice festive touch!

✽ Jalapeno: The fresh jalapenos pair really well with the avocado and add in a nice little kick of spice to the eggs.

✽ Cilantro: If you are one of those with tastebuds that make cilantro taste like soap then you can most definitely leave it out. The eggs will still be tasty! Avocado, jalapeno, and cilantro is just a trio of ingredients that I love.

Worcestershire Sauce: My not-so-secret ingredient that I add to just about every savory dish I make. By using half worcestershire and half lime juice, the egg will have more savory flavor and less in-your-face acidic flavor. It adds delicious umami to the eggs.

✽ Lime Juice: I swapped out the usual white vinegar with lime juice since lime juice and avocado are tasty together. The lime juice will add in some needed acidity to cut the richness of the avocado and egg yolks.

Dijon Mustard: A bit of Dijon mustard goes a long way, and it adds in a bit of sharpness and has good flavor. If you don't have Dijon on hand, you can always swap it out with yellow mustard.

Cumin: Cumin is my favorite spice, and it really brings all the flavors of these deviled eggs together.

✽ Salt + Pepper: Pepper will add in a nice flavor, but salt is extremely important in this recipe! If you don't add enough salt, the egg filling will taste bland and not as flavorful as it should. If you add too much salt, well the egg filling will be too salty. I don't list how much salt to add to this recipe because it all depends exactly on how big your eggs are and how big your avocado is. Follow your tastebuds to determine how much salt to add, and add VERY little salt at a time until you reach the perfect amount. The filling should be popping with flavor when you reach the right amount of salt.

✽ Bacon: Bacon tastes good with everything, but especially with these avocado eggs making it the perfect addition. It also adds a nice final touch to the eggs making them look pretty.

Paprika: A little sprinkle of paprika at the end will make these eggs perfect. You can use regular paprika, sweet paprika, or smoked paprika.

How to Make Christmas Deviled Eggs with Avocado

Boil the Eggs: In large pot or large saucepan, place 6 large eggs in a single layer. Fill with water; an inch of water above the eggs. Place the pot over medium-high heat until it begins to boil. Once boiling, remove from heat, cover, and let sit for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, remove each hard boiled egg from the hot water with a spoon and place in a bowl of cold water to stop the cooking.

Make the Bacon: Fry 2 thick-cut bacon strips in a non-stick skillet until crispy. Remove bacon strips from skillet, and drain on paper towels on a plate. Cut each bacon strip into 6 pieces so you have a total of 12 small bacon pieces.

Make the Filling: Once the hard boiled eggs are cooled, peel eggs and discard the shells. Using a sharp knife, slice eggs in half lengthwise. Scoop out the cooked yellow yolks and place in a medium mixing bowl. Add in medium avocado, 1 tablespoon minced fresh jalapeños, 1 tablespoon minced cilantro leaves, 2 teaspoons worcestershire sauce, 2 teaspoons lime juice, 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard, and 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin. Using the back of a fork or spoon, mash yolks and avocado and stir all the ingredients together until creamy and smooth. Taste test the egg mixture, and add small amounts of salt and black pepper until your liking.

You will most definitely need to add salt to this egg filling, but the amount all depends on exactly how big your avocado and eggs are. Add VERY small amounts of salt at a time until the filling pops with flavor. If you don't add enough salt, the filling will not be as flavorful as it should.

Jalapeno Deviled Eggs Recipe

Make Deviled Eggs: Spoon the yolk & avocado filling into each of the hollow egg halves. You can also use a piping bag with a plain large piping tip or a large star tip. You can alternatively use a plastic Ziploc bag with a hole in the corner of the bag as well. Now add one crispy bacon piece to the back of each deviled egg. Top each deviled egg with a half of a thin jalapeno slice.

➎ Lastly, sprinkle on a bit of paprika on the top of the eggs.
