Devilish Sriracha Avocado Deviled Eggs Recipe
There is always a flurry of excitement in our house around Halloween. Costumes, creepy decorations and pumpkin carving, which all culminates in a fun night for all and a ton of leftover candy (ugh!)
As much I love nibbling on a mini Almond Joy or two (or three), what I am really excited for is the roasted pumpkin seeds that my mum taught me to make years ago. Impossible to resist! And now I’ve added another favorite to my list…these mayo-less avocado deviled eggs that are donning…what else…devil horns for Halloween.
Adding avocados to deviled eggs is an easy way to achieve a beautifully creamy filling without relying on mayonnaise. When I started developing this recipe, I though I might need to add yogurt for extra moisture, but the mashed avocado and lime juice made that unnecessary.
And what are “devil-ish” eggs without a little heat? That’s where the sriracha comes in. Add as little or as much as you like according to your and your guests’ preferences. You could make one milder batch for the little devils and another for the hot and spicy grown-up devils.
As for the hard-boiled eggs, there are a multitude of opinions out there on how to make eggs that are easy to peel. I swear by cooking them in the Instant Pot. The peels come off so easily!
Of course, you don’t have to save these deviled eggs for Halloween. They are perfect for healthy snacking or serving as appetizers any old time.
