Although we start every St. Patrick’s Day with a green bagel, each year we look for new, fun green dishes for our celebration.

This year it’s Avocado Deviled Eggs: Avocado replaces the mayo in this party classic.

This recipe, from Avocados From Mexico, yields 12 deviled eggs.



  • 6 hard-cooked eggs, peeled and cut lengthwise
  • 1 fully ripened avocado from Mexico, peeled, pitted and diced
  • 1 tablespoon plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon white vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon minced jalapeño
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped onion
  • Garnish: chopped fresh chives

    1. COMBINE the egg yolks and avocado in a small bowl; mash until smooth.

    2. STIR in yogurt, mustard, vinegar, salt and pepper; mix thoroughly. Stir in jalapeño and onion

    3. SPOON into egg white shells, dividing equally. Arrange on a serving plate. Cover lightly with plastic wrap; refrigerate for up to 3 hours. Garnish with chives before serving.

  • Replace the chive garnish with minced ham.
  • Create a surprise layer of deviled ham underneath the green egg layer.
  • Add a topping of frizzled ham or small grilled ham or Canadian bacon slices.
