Everyone loves appetizers for holiday gatherings. They allow us to talk and hold our food at the same time. And this is one that both Dr. Seuss and the Grinch would love. Here is a great paleo recipe for Green Deviled Eggs.


  • 6 large eggs, hard boiled
  • 1 medium avocado (about 5 oz.)
  • 2-3 tsp. fresh lime juice
  • 1 tsp. red onion, minced
  • 1 Tbsp. minced jalapeno
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh cilantro, chopped
  • kosher salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste
  • 1 Tbsp. diced tomato
  • pinch chile powder (for garnish)


  1. Peel the cooled hard boiled eggs.
  2. Cut the eggs in half horizontally, and set the yolks aside.
  3. In a bowl, mash the avocado and 2 whole egg yolks; discard the rest.
  4. Mix in lime juice, red onion, jalapeƱo, cilantro, salt and pepper and adjust to taste. Gently fold in tomato.
  5. Scoop heaping spoonfuls of the guacamole into the 12 halved eggs.
  6. Sprinkle with a little chile powder for color and arrange on a platter.
