What we love about these Avocado Deviled Eggs
I love making these Avocado Deviled Eggs for a snack for myself throughout the week or to take to gatherings. Obviously the eggs themselves are a great source of protein, good fats, and many vitamins that our bodies need. Then add in avocado? We have a power house snack. Avocado is one of my favorite things to keep around the house for healthy fats, fiber, and some heart health benefits.

Why are they called Deviled Eggs?
Although there is quite a history on this classic egg appetizer, they are called “Deviled Eggs” for the culinary term “deviled”. Traditional deviled egg recipes are highly seasoned with spices which is what deviled means. This version stays simple with salt and pepper but you definitely can add in the paprika or some other seasonings to spice it up a bit.
