Happy St. Patricks Day!
Add a touch of green to your dinner table tonight with these delicious Guacamole Filled Eggs.

  2. In a medium bowl, mash avocado with a fork.  Add egg yolks and continue to mash until smooth.  
  3. Add remaining filling ingredients, taste and season with salt and pepper. 
  4. Alternately for a very smooth filling,  place filling ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth.

  6. Great idea!! Avocado and egg is a newly discovered taste treat for me. How smart to combine them in deviled eggs. I may try paprika instead of chili powder.
