Fat Guacamole Devils

Breathing new life into a tried and true recipe is a simple way of adding variety to your diet. Take deviled eggs, for example. They’ve been around as long as any of us can probably remember, although you don’t see them at parties as often as you once did. It’s not because deviled eggs aren’t good, it’s just that they’re not that exciting anymore. You might, however,  start seeing them served more often again if enough people see the recipe for Fat Guacamole Devils Tamara Baysinger entered in our Primal Blueprint Cookbook Challenge.

Her take on deviled eggs eliminates the mayonnaise and uses avocado instead. This loads the eggs with even more healthy fat and gives the filling a creamy, rich texture. A teaspoon or so of lime juice and hot sauce liven things up and just like that you’ve got a flavorful, interesting new take on a classic recipe.

While these deviled eggs aren’t quite bite-sized (they’re not called Fat Guacamole Devils for nothing) they’re definitely the type of finger food we love to snack on. We can imagine eating these eggs pretty much any time of day that hunger strikes. You can serve them as snack food at everything from dinner parties to Super Bowl parties. If you want to dress the little devils up for a party (or just add more flavor and fat) follow Tamara’s suggestion of garnishing the eggs with chopped olives or crumbled bacon. Other garnishes to consider are cilantro, a fresh herb that always goes well with avocado, and paprika, a spice typically used to top deviled eggs.

  1. Hey there! I just want to say that I love your blog/site, and have never commented before, but I never thought another person used this recipe but me:) eggs and avocados are a few of my favorite foods, and they just go great together! I’ve been slowly transitioning my diet to a more primal one the past year or so, and you’ve helped a lot. I love waking up in the morning and reading something new each day. So, thank you Mark for having your awesome site for everyone to learn and share ideas. I love cooking primal!

  2. That looks AMAZING! I’ve been trying to think of new ways to take eggs for breakfast during the work week (I go to work super early and need something I can bring with me). This looks wonderful!!

  3. Oh very yummy. I forgot I bought some Avocados last week. Thanks for the reminder. I think I might make 1/2 dozen of these tonight!

  4. When I first began my primal journey (trek? epic quest?) I made something like this. I just made regular guacamole with onions and tomatoes and stuffed that in the egg whites. I like the idea of putting the yolks back in with the avocado. I think I just popped them in my mouth when I made them before.

  5. I have to make this tonight! Hockey Night in Canada with some friends coming over…nothing but primal yummies and THIS will WOW them I am sure. Great, fresh and very simple idea. Well done…

  6. Dude… Thanks for posting this!! There is nothing about this Primal Snack that isn’t awesome. I will have to make some of these bad boys tonight!

  7. Avocados and fried eggs for breakfast with a touch of hot sauce. Been on my list of favs for the last 6 or 7 months. Love the idea of the deviled eggs.

  8. I am happy to say that today I purchased a couple of avocados and have some lovely eggs in the frig.

    These sound great!

    1. How long have you been practicing the Primal Diet? You look great! I am planning on starting very soon. I have alot of “before” pics and I look at them and they give me motivation (they make me sad too lol) Do you have any tips or advice? Thanks! Michelle

  9. Brilliant – and so simple. Come on, avocados… hurry up and ripen! I can’t wait to surprise Mr. Kitty with these gems. 🙂

  10. My wife and I are hosting dinner tonight for two old friends of ours, and we have a 5-pound Mary’s Free-range Duck, chard greens with bacon, a butternut squash to make a delicious hot soup, and 2 bottles of Carmel Road Pinot Noir.

    We were trying to think of what we can make for an appetizer, and then I read this post and the question to the meaning of life has been answered!

  11. OMG those look amazing i never would have thought of that!

    good call!

  12. Looks great. I will be trying this one soon. I often eat deviled eggs. My wife loves them and it’s quick if I’m in a hurry to leave. I have been recently just using mayo, dijon mustard and adding hemp seeds for a nice crunch.

  13. Hey, cool! What fun to come home after a primally-fueled weekend vacation to discover my recipe here. Thanks, Mark! 🙂 Tamara

  14. Just made these little devils. They’re awesome – I added a little red onion, too.

  15. guacamole, hot sauce, and eggs!

    that’s music to my primal texan ears. guacamole and hot sauce are like water and oxygen in the south.

    i can’t wait to try these bad boys tomorrow.

  16. Two of my favorite foods in an easy snack form. What more could you want? I’ll be trying these tonight!

  17. Wow…two of my favorite appetizers. It was staring me in the face all along.

    Definitely making a batch for the Super Bowl!

  18. We always add curry powder (Madras is the best!) to our deviled eggs. Alot of curry! Yum!

  19. Mark, I thought I saw a comment you made concerning Tourette’s Syndrome and lesions on the CNS. I have suffered from TS (and ADHD and depression) since I was 1 year old. Do you have more information about TS? I’ve never seen anything online about a TS/CNS/lesions? Thanks.

  20. Wow… very well done. I wasn’t looking for a new way to eat eggs, but any new way to add guacamole to a meal is a good one.

  21. Yup, it does cry out for a side of ham to go with it. But, seriously, what a perfect idea~ combining two of the best foods, eggs & avocado. I can’t wait to make it.

  22. OMG, that’s fabulous! My husband is a huge fan of deviled eggs, so these and some ham or bacon will find their way on to our Super Bowl menu. Genius!

  23. Wow! Tried these tonight and all I have to say is YUM! I am just starting my foray into the Primal way of life, and this was my first official jump in that direction. I am also making a meatloaf (although I am stuffing it in green bell peppers) that I found on the site for dinner tonight. So far, so good!

  24. Whoa! Dude! more Synchronicity!!! This recipe is worth finding this site!!! I’ve just started checking this place out and already got my 1’s and 0’s worth!! 🙂 Bet this could be made into an incredible egg salad recipe….hum…

  25. I absolutely love the recipes on your site! Whenever I need a bit of food variety I know I can count on Mark’s Daily Apple.

  26. I always like different textures – so I tried to add bacon. I added bacon with the avocado and egg yolks to add a salty taste. And then crumbled bacon on top. Check out my recipe at cavemengourmet.com

  27. This is one good information for everyone. I usually spend not much on massage because coz I’m kinda managing my finances. What we all need is a reasonable price with excellent and quality service.nike air Jordan

  28. I added a pinch of cayenne pepper powder to give it slow and lasting kick. Applying lime on top in the end helps keep it from turning brown sooner.

  29. ok i heard about this site on the radio the other night so i might be trying this diet very soon, and i totally lve this snack idea plus avacodos are super high in monounsaturated fatty acids which is good to help lose belly fat! i might put some nuts with it too

  30. I made these myself. I found that adding in very finely chopped jalapeno to be better than hot sauce. Also, topping it with some paprika or whatever other spice/herb is great.

  31. My wife and I are taking these and the walnut crust pie to the family Thanksgiving Feast. If they go over well I might sell the fam on Primal eating. If they go over poorly there will be more for me. I see no downside.

  32. Delicious!!! I just made these this evening, inspired by Easter tomorrow. I looove deviled eggs, but these just might be even better! I used lemon instead of lime juice just because that’s what I had available… added a teaspoon or a little less of honey to keep the avocado nice and bright green (since these won’t be eaten until tomorrow, I don’t want them getting brown!)…went maybe a little extra on the hot sauce… and OMG they are Goooooood 🙂 Thank you!

  33. I added cayenne pepper in lieu of hot-sizzle…. delicious! (any estimate on nutritional info of a six pack of these li’l guy’s? can’t be more than 3000% recommended daily fat intake, right?)

  34. I added garlic salt, fresh cilantro and a whole lot of Cholula hot sauce-absolute perfection! Thank u, thank u, topped it with paprika. Looks fancy!

  35. How long do you think these would keep in the fridge in an air tight container and wrapped with plastic wrap? Just curious if I could make these advanced for the week or not. Thanks

  36. I’ve made these for a party before – they were a hit (except I made them too spicy for some people)… I’m pondering how to do a portable version… Perhaps 2 overstuffed halves put together with a slice of crispy bacon wrapped around the long way to hold the filling in? *nom*

  37. What a great recipe. Mine were *really* fat. I had just purchased a dozen turkey eggs and made these with them. Served them up alongside a salmon salad. Yum!

  38. I was going to do this cada’ thing, just before I got to the softened butter wasting there first, WOW! That IS why deviled eggs exist in the first place!

    I started thinking about all the ‘weird’ old recipes I found my old copy the White House Cookbook; where they could have used whatever they wanted; and then suddenly realized that butter was used in almost every instance that mayonnaise is now! So I tried drained tuna and crème fraiche’ WOW! I tried it with lunchmeats and citrus WOW! It’s fun to play in your food! Avocado, bacon and feta for example, with hard yolks make for a FINE spinach salad, perhaps some of your favorite toasted nuts, oh the possibilities! Just combine those fats for personal endurance and thrifty kitchens all! A pinch of maple flakes in savory, and a pinch of Himalayan/Fleur De Sel in sweet, can’t go wrong, and NO more is not better in a pinch! 😀

  39. I have been making these for a while, but I make mine by scooping out the yellow and separately mashing the avo with garlic, salt and pepper and adding only a little of the yellow – not a fan of too much of the yellow, mainly for the taste. Its my favourite snack or go to for breakfast.

  40. I love guacamole and I love deviled eggs, but I did not like these Guacamole Devils. I was so excited when I saw the recipe, but disappointed when trying them. Sorry.
