Oh hi! I made more deviled eggs! Because these need to be in our lives quite a bit more often, agreed? However, in the spirit of Cinco de Mayo (which was totally last week but hey, life happens), these are a little different than your traditional deviled eggs; Guacamole Deviled Eggs!
Whew. Do you ever wake up and you lay in bed for a solid 5 minutes before you figure out what day it is? Basically my life every day this week. I definitely hit a little bit of a burn out the past few days and I'm doing my damnedest to climb out of the slump. Sometimes, instead of firing up the computer when you get home from work aaand working some more, you just gotta fall into bed, shoes still on, and take a nap with your cat ???? (AKA Tuesday).
Or is that just me?
There's just been SO much going on, I think my brain finally went a little caput on me. Balancing work, the site, the wedding, any semblance of a social life, everyday shinanagins like "oh we should probably eat dinner...gotta cook that...", and just my general health can sometimes be a little much youknowwhatimean? I've been hitting a point of anxiety where I literally have to remind myself to just sit, shut my eyes, and breeeeathe.
Right now, we're attempting to plan our honeymoon. SUPER exciting (seriously though I can't wait) but a lot of things to do! Anybody ever been to Tokyo/Kyoto? Suggestions? Thoughts? Places to stay? I would love ANY advice ????
Aaaanyway, these Guacamole Deviled Eggs. An avocado twist on the classic deviled eggs dish. This recipe is still the exact same process as a regular deviled egg with just a few more delicious ingredients added to the mix. Obviously avocado. I mean, where could you go wrong? Oh wait. You can't.
I honestly don't know how I hadn't come across this version earlier in my life. I've been missing out. Smashing up an avocado in your deviled egg mix is one of the best food ideas ever hands down. Zest it up with some lime juice, fresh cilantro, garlic, chili powder, and a pinch of salt and pepper? Um, YES please!
I love deviled eggs in general because they're so easy, so delicious and SO pretty! Who wouldn't love these at any get together? Also, I actually didn't pipe these Guacamole Deviled Eggs, went for the more natural look, similar to how guacamole would be served with chips, and they're still pretty adorable. Easy peezy!
PS I definitely topped these puppies with a pinch of cayenne pepper along with the go-to paprika. Just to give them that little kick ????. Gotta have it ????.Print
